Casi Wyn – Water, Land, Air

Thursday 30 June 2022 - Friday 1 July 2022

Water, Land, Air

Contemporary Welsh sounds and classical meet in this fusion of myth and magic, of lakes and mountains, of music and mellifluous tales.  A new collaboration between seven musicians from Sinfonia Cymru and multi-talented singer, composer and poet laureate Casi Wyn. Join us as we embark on a voyage explored through this new set of experimental pop songs from one of Wales’ most musically eloquent artists.

Here’s a quick preview of one of Casi’s new songs, currently being arranged and orchestrated for the project:

Llifo

Music and lyrics by Casi Wyn

Produced by Sion Trefor

 

Dŵr sy’n lleddfu

Water that heals

 

Dŵr sy’n lloni

Water that inspires

 

Dŵr sy’n corddi

Water that stirs

 

yn cynhyrfu

and excites

 

rhywbeth ynof aeth yn angof,

something within me that was long ago forgotten

 

geiriau’r teithiau imi eu troedio.

words from my past

the lanes I once treaded.

 

[Chorus]

Llifo,

Flowing,

 

pob diferyn dry yn atgof

Every droplet melts into memory

 

Llifo,

Flowing,

 

cyn cyrraedd gwely meddal y môr.

before reaching the soft sea bed.

 

 

Dŵr sy’n gwasgu

Water that holds

 

Dŵr sy’n tasgu

Water that whirls

 

Dŵr sy’n dawnsio

Water that dances

 

Dŵr sy’n deffro

Water that awakens

 

Dŵr sy’n annog

Water that encourages

 

Dŵr sy’n garrog

Water that sings

 

Dŵr sy’n siapio

Water that shapes

 

yn cofleidio.

and caresses.
