Here's one for multiculturalism: Inthe Chieftains ventured to Beijing and Shanghai, united with Chinese ensembles and successfully fused the type of traditional Irish music they're known for with Chinese music. It seems a most unlikely Love Will Tear Us Apart - Nouvelle Vague - Nouvelle Vague but, in fact, the two prove quite compatible on The Chieftains in Chinaa superb, mostly instrumental live album.

As ambitious and risk-taking as they are, none of these performances sound the least bit pretentious, forced, or contrived. Chieftains leader Paddy Moloney insightfully shows us the parallels between Chinese and Irish forms and makes the fusion sound completely organic and natural.

Sep 05,  · The pieces that combine the Chieftains and the Chinese ensembles are the best - you can get a dozen CDs with great Chieftains' music, but only one that combines the uilleann pipes and the pippa. The most fascinating thing about the album is the parallel between the musicians' roles in the Irish and Chinese groups, and how little effort it takes to make an Irish tune sound Chinese and a Chinese /5(5).
