Few bands today can compare in virtuosity and versatility with Diskan. A group of truly dazzling individual talents, playing a variety of instruments from flutes, fiddles and whistles to bouzoukis, guitars and double bass. Incorporating wonderful melodies and songs from Ireland, Brittany, Scotland, England and the Balkans, Diskan lead the listener on a new and exciting musical journey. Each track offers up something completely new and full of lovely surprises. A wealth of songs and tunes to be savoured, portrayed with a depth of understanding and feeling few bands achieve. Throughout the album there is evidence of their virtuosity, allowing personalities to shine and highlighting their unique styles and influences. However, the sum of Diskan is far greater than their impressive parts. As a collective they produce a powerful, spirited and textured sound, rich in imagination, innovation and tradition. A mighty debut album from one of the most exciting traditional bands to emerge from the UK in a long, long time. Kevin Crawford, Lunasa.
