Biography

The Afro Celt Sound System is a musical group which fuses modern electronic dance rhythms (trip hop, techno, etc.) with traditional Irish and West African music. It was formed by Grammy-nominated producer-guitarist Simon Emmerson, and features a wide range of guest artists.

Their albums have been released through Peter Gabriel's Real World Records, and frequently perform at the WOMAD concert festivals. Their sales on the label are exceeded only by Gabriel himself. They signed a contract with Real World for five albums, of which the 2005 release Volume 5: Anatomic was the last.

After a number of festival dates in 2007, the band went on hiatus. In 2010, they regrouped to play a number of shows (including a return to WOMAD) and compiled a retrospective titled Capture.

On the 20 May 2014 the Afro Celt Sound System launched a new website and with it announced the upcoming release of a new album, Born.
