Songs in the Mother Tongue
Preview: Skibbereen Town Hall, West Cork, Friday 27th April 2018

Mamasongue is a celebration of songs from distant lands, brought to the stage by Camilla Griehsel, one of Ireland’s most versatile and passionate singers. Camilla sings songs from around the world, and just around the corner, that transcend the constraints of culture, time and place to show that, through performance, a song’s true meaning can be deeply felt, regardless of its language.
“I am drawn to the universal emotions in performance” says Camilla. “As we travel from culture to culture, we’ll find parallels in the way music resolves into nurture, love and joy from keening laments to the comfort of a lullaby. From a mother’s tongue comes the primordial language of song beyond words.”
Presented over two hours, Camilla will sing of love, loss and longing, passion, desire and joy. She reaches out and reminds us of the undeniable connection between us all. Camilla Griehsel, born in Sweden, now living in West Cork, has over thirty years professional experience from pop recording artist to avant-garde opera, from traditional jazz to South American folk. She is dedicated to bringing people together and connecting hearts through the power and universality of song.
For Mamasongue, Camilla will be joined onstage by pianist and West Cork based collaborator Maurice Seezer, Congolese guitarist Niwel Tsumbu, Donegal percussionist Éamonn Cagney and South African bassist Concord Nkabinde. The show previews in Skibbereen Town Hall on Friday 27th April, before moving to the Everyman, Cork, in September, with more dates to be announced.
