Ní Chonaola (pronunced Lah-sah-reena Nee Huneeluh) was a
lead singer on the much acclaimed CD of Irish sacred songs Lights
In The Dark, produced by Hector Zazou & chosen by The Irish
Times as one of the best albums released in 1998. She has been
featured on many television and radio programmes in Ireland and
abroad and sang at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.
Her new album
An Raicín Álainn, was launched at this year’s Interceltic
Festival in Lorient, Brittany.
Although her singing style is deeply rooted in the sean-nós singing
tradition in her home on Inishere, the Aran Islands, a broad range of contemporary
music has influenced her.Lasairfhíona beautifully delivers different
styles of singing on this album: some passed on to her from her family, traditional
melodies that have not been recorded before; her new compositions, and her
arrangements of lyrics by the well-known Aran writer Dara Ó Conaola.
Máire Breatnach has excellently produced this new CD & also features
Mary Bergin, Johnny McDonagh, her brother MacDara O Conaola, singer & others.
“Lasairfhíona’s voice is an attractive and yet unusual
thing within Sean-nós circles, being wispy, and ethereal with a floating
childlike quality it is a highly individual slant on an age old tradition.” -
John O’ Regan, Irish Music Magazine
