Commissioned by Ruaille Buaille, Lucan Children’s Music Festival 2021, from musicians in seven countries worldwide, Through the Lens is a truly unique strand of this year’s Festival. All filmed on location during a May 2021 when the entire world was at a high level of lockdown, this very quirky, very World Music-focused initiative lets children peer into other cultures, other music and other societies through the lens of professional musicians from around the globe!
Bringing their traditions, their lockdown locations and their culture live from Ghana, Cuba, Peru, Argentina, Spain, Australia and Brazil, we hope you enjoy this cultural journey from the northern hemisphere to the southern hemisphere that harks back always to Ireland, to Dublin, but especially to Lucan, to reflect the cultural diversity of the area and the rich international musical tapestry that is being woven here.
