Tune of the Day: Dúlamán

Traditional Irish folk song

This Irish folk song is named after a type of edible seaweed known in English as “channelled wrack”. Its lyrics relate to the Irish practice of gathering seaweed for various purposes, dating from lean times when seaweed was valuable as a defense against famine.

There are many versions of the melody that come from the Irish folk song tradition. One version was recently featured in the 2014 animated film Song of the Sea.

Thanks to Gabrielle for suggesting this tune!
