NEW ALBUM OUT NOW
Jiggy continue the tradition of their musical ancestors while bringing a whole new exotic flavour to the table, more of a collective than an orthodox band, Jiggy’s mercurial line up mixes and melds Irish traditional music, world rhythms and cutting-edge dance grooves. Jiggy took the internet by storm with their video ‘Silent Place’ celebrating the global togetherness of dance and to date it has clocked up more than 35 million views. This has introduced the band to a brand new audience worldwide and their debut album TRANSLATE went to number 1 in the world music charts in Ireland, United States, Canada, France, Australia, Poland & UK and they are now a big hit with festival audiences across the globe.
"This has been a summer soundtrack; now the nights are drawing in I'm still finding it seductive and charming, the appeal just doesn't fade."
"The overlaying of Irish and Indian improvised vocals in ‘Head Rush’ is an innovative combination."
"True to its namesake, Hypernova is a cosmic explosion of energy - and all 13 tracks beg to be heard in a live setting”.
— Hot Press, Feb 2020
"An album that both encourages you out of your chair to get you dancing around the kitchen and, for those that stubbornly refuse to get up, it provides enough intricacies and subtleties to engage the armchair listener."
— Folk Radio UK, Feb 2020
"Hypernova is hyper at one end and novel sounding at the other - new and old, freshly ancient and anciently refreshing."
— The Living Tradition, Feb 2020
Released in 2017 TRANSLATE went to number 1 in the world music charts in Ireland, United States, Canada, France, Australia, Poland & UK.
"Mosh it all together with beat box-ing, samples, hip-hop, reggae and bags of good natured humour, and what you get is gloriously tuneful, genre-defying, utterly irresistible. "
