(the Celtic people of Africa...)

In the chorus of humanity it has been said, 
that no race equals the Celtic in penetrative notes
that flow straight to the heart.

"ama Celtic iAfrika" presents an elemental, basic and far reaching musical expression of life itself - of the Celtic spirit that broods within the people of South Africa today. 

"Listen, listen, listen and you shall hear afar
A low and lovely murmur like the singing of a star;
But listen, listen, listen till all things fade and fall

And the lone and luring music is master over all."

Robin Flower 
 'Tir Na N-Og'
