dbo:abstract
  • I Danú sono un gruppo musicale il cui repertorio è improntato allo stile folk irlandese. Si è formato nel 1996 ad Waterford, Irlanda meridionale, debuttando all'Orient Celtic Music Festival. Il loro nome è probabilmente ispirato a quello di una nota divinità irlandese, appunto: Danu. Sebbene i componenti siano tutti legati alle radici musicali del loro paese, la musica che eseguono è improntata su arrangiamenti in chiave moderna in grado di restituire ai brani una rinnovata vitalità. Il loro album Think Before You Think (il secondo in carriera, prodotto nel 2000) è stato votato dalla rivista di Dublino Irish Music Magazine come Best Overall Traditional Act. Ugualmente, unica band che abbia ottenuto tale riconoscimento, i Danú sono stati votati per due volte come miglior gruppo tradizionale al BBC Folk Awards. La loro versione della canzone tradizionale Co. Down lanciata originariamente da Tommy Sands ha vinto, all'interno della stessa competizione musicale, il premio come migliore canzone tradizionale.

  • Danú est un groupe de musique traditionnelle irlandaise. Les membres du groupe se rencontrèrent en 1994, à Waterford dans le sud-est de l'Irlande. Après leur prestation au Festival interceltique de Lorient en 2005, les membres, qui jusque là menaient des activités musicales séparées, décident de se constituer en un groupe musical. Le groupe est très attaché à ses racines traditionnelles, mais n'hésite pas à innover dans ses arrangements dont les critiques apprécient l'énergie et l'empathie. Le second album du groupe, Think Before You Think (2000), fut élu Best Overall Traditional Act (meilleure performance traditionnelle) par le magazine dublinois Irish Music. Danú a également été élu deux fois Best Traditional Group (meilleur groupe traditionnel) par le BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, en 2001 et 2004, ce qui constitue un record. Son interprétation de Co. Down (écrit par Tommy Sands) remporta le Best Traditional Song (meilleur chant traditionnel) dans la même compétition en 2004. (fr)
