New album from Máire Úna Ní Bheaglaoich (accordion&concertina) and Junshi Murakami (harp) out now. Máire Úna Ní Bheaglaoich (Mary Begley) is from West Kerry Gaeltacht area, from a musical family (she's a cousin of Séamus, Brendan, Seosaimhín and Máire). She grew up listening to the music and learning tunes from family and neighbours. She is a familiar figure playing and tapping her feet away in Dublin town, cheering up people. She says 'Music is the best part of life'. Junshi is from Tokyo, Japan. He came to Ireland particularly for the interest in the harp and the traditional music. He studied the harp in Dublin and now enjoys teaching. We met in the street of Dublin one day some 10 years ago. Since then, we have shared many tunes and laughter. We wanted to hear a CD with simple cute tunes, and that's how we started making this recording. We wanted to include the tunes that Máire heard when she grew up in Kerry. For Junshi, hearing those tunes and stories was like a journey through the music to the heart of Ireland. Harp is raindrops and box is waves, hence we call our album Ceol ''kyowl ｢ｷｮｰﾙ｣'' (music) Uisce ''ish-keh ｢ｲｼｭｶ｣'' (water).
