Folkart Records 2007

Their debut album arrives after selling 2000 copies from their previous demos.
The álbum consists of 13 tracks with a new point of view beyond the “celtic label”
Taking the Irish folk as a starting point the album is opened to new rhythms and eastern and Mediterranean sonorities with experimental arrangements, in his most personal and creative project..

Also to point the incorporation of ethnic percussion and the increased presence of a variety of of collaborations (hurdy-gurdy, cello, didgeridoo, tambourine, ...)

In April of 2011 was released “Impuls” their new album, after the success of their debut album "Crossing Worlds" (2007).

In this second disc, DEALAN takes a step forward in finding a personal sound halfway between east and west, with a Mediterranean air.

With a language that moves between folk and world-music, innovative and very suggestive, they present 12 tracks tinged with fresh sounds and amazing experimental arrangements.



From Ireland to India, crossing the Mediterranean, multicultural instruments met in an explosive and contemporary sound without losing the essence of the traditional roots.
Formed in Maresme, Barcelona, in 2002, initially as a quartet. In 2004 the group expanded and was completed with the addition of vocals and percussion, and began to consolidate their common project: DEALAN.

Soon, his folk and his innovative and energetic live show began to tour on many scenarios, and the first awards came when they were proclaimed Prize winners of the Toni Munoz Awards granted by the City Council of Mataró, in June 2004 and got first place in the twelfth edition of the Cirera Rock in September same year.

This allowed them to record a two rough cuts at their study, of which 2000 copies were sold out quickly bn their live concerts, becoming evident the success and involvement that gets the band with the public.

In late 2005 Dealan re-entered on the studio to record a song for the album edited by the Casa de la Musica Popular Clap , compilation of songs about their city, Mataró.

In January 2006 they created the show An Dúlra along with the irish dance company Celtic Caos . After its premiere the show was presented in many theaters in the country, finishing with a tour in Andalusia as part of the cycle “Concert Senses“ during August 2007.

In March 2006 DEALAN performs within the framework of the nineteenth Festival Tradicionàrius at the concert hall Apolo in Barcelona, also participating in the festival's compilation CD. During that summer, the band starts a tour that takes them to the Peninsula, to emphasize their participation in the Celtic Festival of Peace in Zaragoza, the Festival of Musics Raiza Murcia or Sumidero Festival in Ordino, Andorra.

In early 2007, after an intense process of preproduction, they released their debut album, Creuant els Mons (FolkArt Records), which shows a further step in its search for innovative sound and their own imprint within the panorama of folk and world music. The disc was borne out by critics and applauded by the public , and Dealan went again on tour to present their new work across the entire Peninsula, in festivals such as the Crossroads of Cultures or FIMPT, and also to some European festivals, as Celtica Festival in Italy or the V Zamek Festival in Poland.

In 2007 were also recognized by two prestigious specialized contests: They were finalist on the VII Contest of Folk Music of Curette and got the 2nd prize of the II Folkez Blas in Ermua.
