Na Leanaí Release Second Album ‘Branching Out’

August 1, 2017

‘Branching Out’ is the much anticipated second album from Na Leanaí, who in just three years have earned themselves an enviable reputation at home and abroad as one of the most exciting new Irish bands.

This album is different in many ways from their debut CD ‘Kindred Roots’ fusing as it does the band’s folk and traditional legacy as the second generation of The Sands Family, with country, jazz and African influences garnered during the last three hectic years touring and performing throughout Europe.

Produced by the legendary Steve Cooney, the new album has a different feel from the last, almost-live, production as these resourceful musicians, persuaded by Cooney dig deeper and deeper into their collective talent to produce something truly unique.

With songs in English, Irish, French and German, including their own original compositions, and supported by Zulu vocalists, a Viking bouzouki player, an Irish piper and assorted members of their musical clan, Na Leanaí have taken another huge step towards their goal of becoming recognised as being in the vanguard of the European resurgence of Irish music.
