A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH KILA The Irish band called Kila takes Celtic reels and rocks them
into the 21st century. This group of virtuoso players and singers
retain the roots of their Irish heritage while putting a more
contemporary spin in original compositions that reach epic proportions
on their latest CD, LUNA PARK (World Village). Kila comes to
the Echoes Living room and unleashes their sound live.
ROGER ENO: RURAL ENGLISH AMBIENCE In a quaint countryside village northeast of London, composer
Roger Eno concocts a music full of English quirkiness, playful
whimsy and subtle joy. In his attic studio called the Clerestory,
Roger Eno talks about music for neglected English composers who
don't exist, 20th century German composers who did exist, and
a musical aesthetic that embraces trumpets and harmoniums, Renaissance
music and barroom songs.
