Electronica // Kilternan, Dublin // He/Him

Banba is an experimental electronic music project, originating from the Dublin mountains.

Formed in 2020, Banba mixes a multitude of electronic genres, creating sonic textures and psychedelic layers, by manipulating samples from vinyls, cassettes, CDs and obscure sounds from the internet.
The name Banba originates from the Irish mythical figure Banbha, a matron goddess of Ireland
The tracks range from down tempo grooves, dusty lofi beats, to uplifting rave euphoria.

Each release touching different genres, but carrying the same authentic Banba style.
Influenced by a contrasting range of genres, from artists such as Thin Lizzy to Bonobo, Four Tet, Burial, BT, Fred again... and Calibre.

Despite the live music scene being restricted at the time, Banba was able to perform the projects first ever live performance in December 2021, with an hour original set at Super Sonic Sand Live:

"Supersonic Sand LIVE incorporating beautiful sand artscapes, live electronic music performances from 7 Irish artists all ending with a firework display on a beautiful natural backdrop.

"

With track releases acclaimed by musical bodies HotPress, GoldenPlec, Nialler 9, IMRO, and a range of local and global radio stations, Banba was tipped as one of the producers to watch out for 2023.
