Sleepsongs is an album of Suantraí - traditional Irish lullabies and songs relating to sleep. Join Dulra for a beautiful and dreamlike journey to the kingdom of sleep, a realm where mothers sweetly lull their infants to rest, faeries carry off babies to magical forests and mythic heroes wrestle through the night as they await their fate.

Dúlra brings a new sound to traditional Irish music with influences from early music, contemporary classical and world music styles.
