JIGGY plus support
Friday 28 July 8pm
Whelan's Wexford St, Dublin
Jiggy has forged a sound very much their own, fusing vocal lilting (port a’ bhéil) & Indian Konnakol, Irish traditional music, hip hop dance grooves, world music rhythms and harmonies. Audience can expect a thrilling live set of original songs and traditional dance tunes.
The band have become something of an internet sensation, with their track ‘King of the Fairies’ clocking up over eight million views. The inspiration behind the project dates back to 2007 when percussionist Robbie Harris collaborated with The Dhoad Gypsies from Rajasthan in live concerts in Ireland. With Irish traditional music as a starting point Harris set up Jiggy to explore Indian grooves in tandem while adding a dash of dash of modern beats and textures. 28th July 2017 Jiggy will release their Debut album ‘Translate’.
“Irish band Jiggy put some serious pep in the step of traditional Irish Music.” Irish Central
