Alal� will play Cult�rlann U� Chan�in alongside Balkan Alien Sound next week. (41011JC3).

Balkan Alien Sound will welcome very special guests to Derry to share the stage with them on Saturday, October 8, at Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin on Great James’ Street for what promises to be a celebration of all all things traditional.

This time the local band are hosting one of the best contemporary groups in the country (and further afield) at the moment, Alalé.

Alalé deliver pure energetic trad music sometimes described as ‘Acoustic electricity’.

They have influences from various different countries and are a mix of Irish and Spanish musicians. They are based in Galway where Spanish and Irish communities interact with each other actively in a city where traditional music from different places is played live every night. Alalé are a lively representation of that scene.

The result at the end is a mixture of different influences, textures and sounds that creates the Alale’s organic world sound.

Teknopeasant will also be bringing his unique brand of Irish folk blues to open the night mixing energetic poetry with raging Banjo riffs.

All three acts are also preparing a special one off performance together. It all takes place on Saturday, October 8, and doors are at 7.30pm.

Early arrival advised. There is also a full bar facility at the venue.
