“Ni Ríain creates emotion and the music is given a poetic feel to it, where we place our own images. Throughout the performance it seemed as if we are at a poetry recital with two voices performing at once. Ni Ríain has a knack of forcing us to listen,  take in what is happening, and make sense of it all.”
