Clonakilty International Guitar Festival are delighted to welcome back Citadel for a 2nd year to #Guitartown.
Citadel is a musical refuge for residents of the Kinsale Road Accommodation Centre. The group was formed after a successful project collecting guitars for people in direct provision ended up in residents playing together and performing in a world music day event. The band consists of people from South Africa, Burundi, Russia, Pakistan,Iraq, India, Belgium and Ukraine.
Every musician performs music from his/her country, accompanied by the other musicians. This result in a fusion of tunes and rhythms from all over the world. Citadel’s main aims are to offer a musical outlet, create awareness and encourage integration through cultural exchange.
