Comments:

Fiamma Fumana play their own songs and updated versions of traditional songs with verve and spirit. They use interesting instruments like bagpipes and bodhran and achieve a nice sound. Their lively songs makes me think of Mouth Music and they use modern sounds well. I imagine they'd be an ideal festival band. This album also captures them well. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
