about

HYPER[BOREA] [lit. "Those who dwell beyond the North Wind”]
It all started back in 1993 when film maker / ambient music composer DAVID BICKLEY came up with the idea of fusing the Irish language with dance music. Samples were made and an arrangement was drawn up with TOM GREEN [TOM GREEN has worked with THE ORB and with his own projects, ANOTHER FINE DAY and STRANGE ATTRACTOR].
Stunning vocalist, lyricist and Irish Language scholar, ÚNA O'BOYLE then came on board and a recording of the now classic “DÚLAMAN” was released. Eventually STARC RECORDS [home of many trad outfits] took up the gauntlet and produced this classic. “SERPENTINE”, which features such luminaries as MÁIRE BREATNACH and DIESEL, went on to win the coveted Dance Act and Album of the Year awards in the HOT PRESS HEINEKEN AWARDS in Belfast.

Track Name: Siobhán
D'eirigh mé ar maidin
A tharraingt chun aonaigh mhóir
A dhíol 's a cheannacht
Mar a dhéanfadh
mo dhaoine romham.

Bhuail tart ar a' bhealach mé
'S shuigh mise síos a dh'ól,
'S le Siúbhán Ní Dhuibhir
Gur ól mise luach na mbróg

Siúbhán Ní Dhuibhir (arís x2)
Gur ól mise luach na mbróg
Track Name: Sylph
Sheas sí os comhair do theach
Sheas sí os comhair do dhoras
Sheas sí 's guí sí orainn
Eist leí a guí

Í a char a bheith (arís)
Í a char a bheith beo
Í a char a bheith (arís)
Í a bhí lán de dóchais

Cailleadh morán anamnacha ann
Í a bhí i lathair
Athrú a cnámha go cré
Í i Hiroshima

Í a char a bheith...
Track Name: Alaloona
Aililiú na gamhna, gamhna bána
Aililiú na gamhna,
Gamhna b'iad a bhfearr liom
Gamhna, ag damhsa ar na banta

Is iníon d'aoire mé feinig gan amhras
Do bhíodh ina cónaí
cois taobh na Leamhna,
Bhí bothán agam féin ann 's fuinneog
i gceann de,
'Sea ghlaofainn ar na gamhna

Aililiú na gamhna, gamhna bána
Aililiú na gamhna,
gamhna b'iad a bhfearr liom
Aililiú na gamhna, gamhna bána
Aililiú na gamhna,
gamhna b'iad a bhfearr liom
Gamhna ag damhsa ar na bánta
(arís)
Track Name: Conlach
Ar choinleach ghlas an Fhómhair,
A stóirIn gur dhearc mé uaim,
Ba dheas do chos i mbróig
'S ba ródheas do leagan siúil.

Do ghrua ar dhath na rósaí
'S do chuirníní bhí fite dlúth,
Monuar gan sinn ár bpósadh
Nó ar bord loinge ag triall chun siúil.

Tá buachaillí na háite seo
Ag athrú 'gus ag éirí teann
'S lucht na gcocán ard
Ag déanamh fárais
do mo chailín donn
do mo chailín donn (arís)
Track Name: Bean
Ím bím, ím bím baro (arís x3)
Ím bím babaró 'gus óró grá (arís)

Caipín bán ar maiden
's púicín ar do ghrá
Chuala tú nó bhfaca tú
Go bhfuair an cailleach bas?
Track Name: Cara
Ith mo ghruaig 's ith do sháith
Ith mo fheoil 's ith do sháith
íth mo chnámha 's ith do sháith
Nua gach bia 's sean gach dí

Cuirim trí thine do anam nocht
Cuirim trí thine
do miongháire giúdach
Cuirim trí thine do bod giúdach
Come, come with me
