Irish band for Hifa 2014

HARARE - World-famous Irish traditional folk musical, Dervish, is one of the visiting acts set to perform at Hifa on the Telecel Main Stage.

Dervish are presented by Culture Ireland and The Mashonaland Irish Association with the support of Golden Pilsener.

Dervish hails from Ireland and were formed in 1989 by Liam Kelly together with four other musicians.

Dervish’s first album, Harmony Hill, was released in 1993 and their album, Playing with Fire, reached number one in the Irish Folk Music and International World/Roots Music Charts.

The group’s music won widespread critical acclaim and the album was described by many as “a landmark Irish traditional album”.

The group has been hailed for its artistry, musicianship and maturity by the media. Dervish has been in the forefront of the traditional Irish music scene and they soon became one of the most sought after acts on the live music circuit worldwide and have continued to remain so over the years.

With 20 years of experience, the group have performed  in several countries such as Hong Kong, USA and Malaysia. Now this year at Hifa 2014, the band performs in Zimbabwe for the first time.

The group’s authentic and distinctive Irish sound has been recognised by popular artistes such as James Brown, The Buena Vista Social Club, Oasis, Sting and Rem who have all performed with Dervish at concerts throughout the world.

Dervish plan on bringing  traditional folk music to festive goers which will undoubtedly leave revellers with a taste of Ireland. It was described by the New Journal as, “the most compelling, most soulful Irish traditional folk band playing today.”

Dervish are performing at Hifa on Golden Pilsener Day, Friday, May 2 at 7pm.
