About Kíla

Formed in Dublin in 1988, Kíla's boundary-testing sound, while rooted in Irish tradition, is inspired by myriad global influences, with Irish lyrics and folk instruments fused with djembe, congas, drums, mandolins, brass, and acoustic and electric bass guitars. Kíla have played in more than 35 countries and at notable festivals like the Montreux Jazz and Edmonton Folk Festivals in Canada; WOMAD Festivals in New Zealand, Spain, and Australia; RWMF in Malaysia; Festival de Ortigueira in Spain; the Sziget Festival in Hungary; Electric Picnic in Ireland; Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival, and Boomtown in the UK; and many more.
