IMLÉ (Translates as;The freeing effect of the mystical hours between 2am – 6am)
Based around the duo of MC Muipéad - an Irish Language rapper from Conamara in Galway & Cian Mac Cárthaigh a Dublin based musician & producer - the goal of IMLÉ is to mix musical styles & artforms together in a way that has never been seen or heard before - particularly in the Irish Language.
