We are happy to introduce the folk part of our lineup. This year the Italian Fusion Festival presents one of the most talented band in Dublin: The Water’s Edge.
Water’s Edge (Ireland) is a group of 3 friends who come from 3 corners of the world very far from each other: Ciaran is the leader who with his beautiful voice and his ease in playing guitar, saxophone and drums created Water’s Edge in the ’80s. Three years ago Onofrio, the Italian of the group began his adventure as a solo guitarist of the group bringing some interesting rhythmic changes and sounds to Water’s Edge. As a duo they have performed at various concerts and radio programs including Radio Dublino and Spirit Radio where they are regular guests. This year they opened the doors to a new friend, Ashih. Ashish is from New Delhi, India. With his unique and professional music knowledge he has brought more changes to what was already an experimental hectic ensemble.
The Water’s Edge are Ciaran Smithfield: Vocals/Guitar/Flaute, Onofrio ‘Chiko’ America: Guitars, Ashish: Drum
The style of Water’s Edge is unique for the simple reason that they are writing original pieces in which they use Italian, Irish and Indian instruments, creating very interesting compositions or renovating some covers adding special sounds and rhythms.
