Info for Celtic Rituals



“Celtic Rituals” is a collection of ancient Irish and Scottish melodies interwoven with Clíodhna’s original compositions. This haunting music is inspired by the traditions of Sean-nós (old style) singing as well as by the pulsating drive of Irish dance music. Drawing on her background in classical and improvised music, Clíodhna opens an acoustic portal to another realm. As a solo artist she melds contemporary and traditional styles to create a new genre that evokes the atmosphere of the Otherworld.

Following her highly successful first recording, “The Celtic Cello”, Clíodhna Ní Aodáin presents her stunning second album, “Celtic Rituals”. The acclaimed Irish cellist, composer, teacher and conductor traverses time and space, delving deeply into the archaic heritage of Celtic melodies, texts and traditions that are hundreds of years old. She uncovers forgotten gems that touch the heart, offering a place for the soul to breathe and unwind. “Celtic Rituals” is a collection of ancient Irish and Scottish melodies interwoven with Clíodhna’s original compositions.

Connecting to Nature: The early Celtic people cherished Nature and had a sacred reverence for their environment, an awareness that sadly has become displaced in our modern culture. With the tracks Cailleach na gCrann (The Tree Witch) and Port na bPucaí (Song of the Pookas), Clíodhna would like to encourage her listeners to renew their appreciation of our precious mother earth.

An Ancient Culture: “Celtic Rituals” offers profound, tranquil moments in pieces such as Fáinne Geal an Lae (Daybreak) and Anam Chara (Soul Friend). In contrast, the compositions Solstice and Ritual Fire deliver driving, foot-tapping grooves. Collectively, the album creates a deep sense of affinity to an ancient culture.

“A stunning collection. Bowing between this world and the Otherworld, Clíodhna's cello transports us to another realm.” - Tristan Rosenstock, RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta / Irish National Radio. The album will feature on his show on the 13th March.

“This album exudes serenity. Straight up lovely and calming.” - Eugene Friesen, Four-time Grammy Award-winning cellist and composer

“Cíodhna Ní Aodáin is an amazing cellist and composer. Her new Album is a wonderful creation. I highly recommend this music.” - David Darling, Grammy Award winning cellist.
