CLANNAD Banba (Original 1993 UK 11-track CD the groups thirteenth album including I Will Find You which was used at the theme to The Last Of The Mohicans picture sleeve)
Though not their best effort, this 1994 release from Clannad is very good. It has a strong pop orientation, tinged with the Celtic influences that have always been a hallmark of Clannad's music. Those songs where these influences are strongest are also the strongest songs on the album; "Caide Sin Do'n Te Sin" is especially memorable, and "Na Laethe Bi" and "Banba Oir" are strong efforts as well. Of the more pop-flavored material, "Sunset Dreams" and "The Other Side" are probably the best. Banba also features "I Will Find You", which Clannad recorded for the 1992 film version of Last of the Mohicans. --Genevieve Williams

With Banba, Clannad reenter their darker side; leaving behind the jazz influence that is so predominate on thier previous album Anam.
Each song is laced with beauty and style, making it a whole album to cherish forever. If you only listen to one track make it 'a gentle place'. The whole album is worth it for that one instrumental alone.
- Máire Brennan
For anyone who likes Enya, this group is important, showing both a prehistory of the solo Enya, as well as a side-development in the area of modern electronic celtic-inspired music. Máire Brennan is now the lead vocalist for Clannad, but she has also produced her own solo work.
Clannad is a family effort, having been begun by Máire and her brothers Ciarán and Paul, plus their uncles. Indeed, the similarity between the words 'clan' and 'clannad' cannot be missed. Enya is another sister, having joined the group briefly before embarking upon a solo career.
Banba achieved great popularity for the band Clannad because of the song I will find you -- this song was used in the film 'Last of the Mohicans'. It is a haunting, lyrical ballad of love and longing, of desire and commitment, doing the strains of music and love with a bittersweet that only the Celtic people seem to know how to do properly.
'Hope is your survival
A captive path I lead
No matter where you go
I will find you
If it takes a long long time
No matter where you go
I will find you
If it takes a thousand years'
Incorporating Mohican and Cherokee chants into the lyric structure, this song is truly a cross cultural experience. It reaches deep into the emotive part of the soul.
Other songs on the album are variously in English and Gaelic, including the beautiful and interesting Na Laethe Bhí and Banba Óir, both of which have interesting cadences and can inspire feeling despite being in a foreign language.Read more ›
After the jazz and blues influenced folk years (circa 1973 - 1982), the rock-inflected albums of the 80's and the kind of transitory album Anam of 1990, 1993's Banba sounds as if they've finally reached their own style. Synthesized soundscapes provide a backdrop against which their beautiful voices (particularly that of Maire Brennan!), harmonies and melodies weave a misty web of mesmerizing music.
The opening Na Laethe Bhi is a dark, murky song with powerful voices in the chorus and Maire's airy lead vocals. It's probably not the best track to start off the album (given the track's elegiac atmosphere), but it still pretty well tells you, where the rest of the CD may take you. Banba Oir, a praise of Ireland, is more in the style of contemporary new-age music, however the song gently evades the shallowness of many similar new-age-muzak productions.
The pop-inflected There For You is one of the perfect pop-songs the band has created so far. It's a stunning track with great lyrics, driving melody and it's a shame the song didn't make it into a single... Instead, the promote the album, the band chose Mystery Game, which probably is a better sum-up of the album - a melodic new age piece with harmony vocals in the chorus, slowly building up layers of sound.Read more ›
It's Friday night, you're back from work and you're wrecked and just want to settle down and relax. Put this cd on and feel your stresses and strains all melt away.
