Comas came together as a band in March of 2003. Its members came from different part of the globe, bringing together their many cultural influences to forge a unique blend of traditional Irish music that literally had them, months after they formed, playing in major festivals in Ireland, Belgium, France, England, Denmark, and Holland. When you hear Comas you'll know that their choice of name was no accident: it translates from Irish Gaelic as "Power," and power is exactly what this band is about. It describes their own driving power coupled with a fine sensitivity for the inner strands of magic that is inherent in Irish music. Comas is a band firmly rooted in Irish music, but with enough space to allow for original compositions. Their openness to new influences and a respectful eye on the past bring Comas to the forefront of what traditional music is about today.
