Continuing Traditions

Director: Dónal Ó Céilleachair

Acclaimed Indian classical musician and composer Ustad Wajahat Khan and much-loved and renowned Irish musician and composer Peadar Ó Riada come together in a unique exploration of the shared musical heritage of their beloved native traditions.

Compiled from over 40 hours of footage, filmed over a two-year period, Continuing Traditions intimately captures the creative process, charting the birth and evolution of two new compositions, from their initial conception through meticulous arrangement and rehearsal, right through to their first public performance.
