When Simon Emmerson began to piece together the Afro Celt Sound System in 1992 he had no idea where the journey would take him. But Emmerson’s fascination with the link between Irish and African traditions introduced him to three like-minded souls – co-producer and multi-instrumentalist James McNally; vocalist and lyricist Iarla O Lionaird; co-producer, engineer and programmer Martin Russell. The bonding of these four members turned the Afro Celts from a project into a band – a band like no other. The proof is to be found on their third album ‘Further In Time’.
…a celebratory mantra that will light the fire of those open-minded enthusiasts of the ancient, the modern, and the mixing of the two.’
Afro Celt Sound System has pulled together all of its elements to offer something as powerful as its killer live show…The album’s a definite winner.
