Living the Tradition DVD

Exclusive DVD now available.

price is €18.99  

Behind every Irish tune is an ancient tale of love and loss, of history and heroes. Living the Tradition is the journey of cello player and composer Ilse de Ziah around Ireland in a search for undiscovered secrets of ten Irish Airs. Along the way she meets with renowned Irish musicians, scholars and local characters who share with her the history and stories behind the music.

Ilse performs each of these intensely beautiful pieces in the settings they were written. Filmmaker Maarten Roos captures the landscapes, the charm of the Irish people and the powerful resonance of the cello, creating a fresh account of Irish music and culture.


The DVD box contains two disks: disk 1 with the main film (96 minutes) and disk 2 with a music video for each air, as well as performances of songs and airs by the musicians who participated in the film (total length approx. 55 min).

The DVD is playable in all regions and on all DVD-players.
