Back in 1988 a track called Orinoco Flow by Enya topped the charts in Ireland and the UK. Now the Donegal enigma is the focus of a new book by the Grammy winning Canadian pianist Chilly Gonzales.

Enya

On the face of it, Enya and Chilly may seem to be unlikely musical companions. He is famed for his piano recitals, taking in everything from Chopin to Soundgarden, and for collaborating with Daft Punk and Drake and she is known for her multi-layered, Celtic wall of sound sonic symphonies.

Chilly's book  is called Enya and is subtitled A Treatise on Unguilty Pleasures, and it uses the vocalist as a prism for how we use music to define ourselves.
