There is an excellent accompanying pamphlet and sheet music.
Also, a Health Warning, the additional feature showing Giovanni Hidalgo and Changuito on Congas 'De Plutinio a Martes' is an addictive version of CRAIC after four hearings,(Ceoil-music, Rince-dance, Amhranaiocht-singing Is-and Caint-chat).
