M'ANAM ~ "My Soul"
M'ANAM is one of the most exciting new vocal ensembles to emerge in recent years, growing naturally from the ground-breaking choral group ANÚNA. Formed in 2017, the members come from the island of Ireland and beyond, encompassing a huge range of musical experiences from classical singing, folk music to rock and yet they are unified together with one voice and one vision.
The musical connection of the group to Ireland is deep and spans all the traditions present here. Their songs and texts date back as far as the Viking raids on Ireland in the 9th century, through to music created by the men themselves under the direction of their Artistic Director Michael McGlynn.
This year the group release their debut album, "M'ANAM" in the Autumn, and are featured artists on the opening track "Clarity" of the latest album by acclaimed Japanese jazz-rock ensemble Mouse on the Keys whose 3rd album "tres" was released this May.The group also feature on the soundtrack of the new World of Warcraft (Blizzard) video game "Warbringers ~Jaina" released this year worldwide.
Their first digital single "Bandó Ribineann" is released this June.
