IIACF Hosts Ardú exists with two main objectives in mind: to bring entertainment and new musical experiences to as wide an audience as possible with accessible, popular and unique repertoire, and to educate and develop musicianship and vocal skills through an education programme which does not discriminate.
The six singers are from various parts of Ireland and the UK - all of whom have roots in traditional choral singing. They launched their debut album, ‘NOVA’ in November 2015. This eleven track album features well-known songs from artists such as Queen and Coldplay, all arranged to suit our unique sound.
In August 2016 Ardú launched the first ever 'Ireland's A Cappella Festival and performed sold out Live shows at Accents Cafe and The Button Factory in the space of a week! Other notable performances at Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin, London A Cappella Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and MusicTown Festival, Dublin.
