Amini from Scotland, originally met the band in Limerick, where the other three at the time were studying a Masters in traditional music at the World Academy of Irish Music, UL. Speaking to Damei, he comments that “The whole idea of the band was to bring together a collective, who share a common ground of innovation but who also keep traditional music at the core and so with this we have incorporated a lot of own compositions and adapted them to given them the ‘Fourth Moon’ branding”.
