An ensemble of cousins from Waterford and Kilkenny, The Kalimbas are well known for their finely tuned vocal harmonies and their ability to bring a room to silent rapture.  With Cathy Forristal and Cliodhna Lily Gahan on vocals, and Damien Kehoe on guitar and vocals, expect haunting melodies and sweet sounds to filter through the busy hospital environment.
