"One of the most beautifully euphoric live experiences" BBC World Review
‘Softly spoken off stage and complete lunatics on it, Kíla have torn up the rulebook with their wantonly eclectic mix of styles, Brilliant!’ Hot Press
“Whatever it is... this is it. Kíla are right there at the cusp of it... Somehow you get the feeling they lit the fuse for the big bang.” Bono
Formed in Dublin Gaelic secondary school Coláiste Eoin in 1988, Kíla's unique and ever evolving sound, while rooted in tradition, is inspired by a myriad of musical influences worldwide. Kíla's 8 members stem from differing musical backgrounds, including Irish traditional, classical, folk and rock.
So far in 2019, Kíla have played 3 shows at London St Patricks Day Festival, attended Folk Alliance in Montreal, headlined the start of Leopardstown Racing Season and performed on Newstalk, and RTE Radio 1. In addition, Kíla are working on the soundtrack for Cartoon Saloon’s latest feature, Wolfwalkers and on the soundtrack for a new feature film from TG4.
Kíla recorded a number 1 single "The Ballad of Ronnie Drew" with U2, The Dubliners, Shane MacGowan, Sinead O'Connor, Glen Hansard, The Corrs, Christy Moore, Damien Dempsey and more in aid of the Irish Cancer Society. In 2010 they were delighted to welcome Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood to join them onstage at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin.
Kíla have played in over 35 countries and at notable festivals like the Montreux Jazz Festival, Edmonton Folk festival Canada, WOMAD festivals in New Zealand, Spain and Australia, RWMF the Sziget Festival Hungary, The Electric Picnic, Glastonbury. In 2016 Kíla closed the Cambridge Folk Festival with Imelda May joining them onstage. Kíla have performed at the Special Olympics; the Hugging Saint Festival; the welcoming of the Dalai Lama at Possibilities and Garden Parties hosted by the President of Ireland.
