Borders – Elma Orkestra & Ryan Vail
NI Music Prize Album of the year winners Ryan Vail and Elma Orkestra.
Absolutely thrilled to announce the Canadian debut of Irish ‘electro acoustic’ duo Ryan Vail and Elma Orkestra. The guys bring their audio visual spectacle to the The Opera House in Toronto on the 10th July.
While much has been made of their 2019 ‘Album of The Year’ victory at the Northern Irish Music Prize, ‘Borders’ – the electro-acoustic collaborative album of Elma Orkestra and Ryan Vail – also saw a shortlisted nomination for ‘Best Live Act’. Those who have witnessed it first-hand are sure to agree. An audio/visual spectacle that combines the forward-thinking modernity of Ryan Vail and delicate composition of Elma Orkestra, the ‘Borders’ live experience must be seen to be believed.
A symphony of electronic and analogue components combines to enhance the live ‘Borders’ show beyond its natural boundary. With drone footage of the Irish border and countryside, string players, classical composition and vocal appearances from Moya Brennan and Stephen James Smith, the assault of the senses from Elma Orkestra and Ryan Vail rivals that of any in Ireland, and it has taken them from deepest Mexico to the Berlin Wall.
