Gwilym Bowen Rhys – “Da Gennyf Air O Ganu”.

Hi guys! 🙂

Time for another song by my crush Gwilym, from that album I’ve been mentioning recently – “Rhwng Y Môr A’r Mynydd” (Between the sea and the mountain) which is a collaboration of various artists from Wales and is entirely in Welsh. There are two songs of Gwilym’s on this album, the one I showed you a few days ago – “Yr Hogyn Pren” (The wooden boy) and this one – “Da Gennyf Air O Ganu”. I also told you how I admire his musical versatility – how he can sing kind of raucorously and fiercely such songs like “Yr Hogyn Pren”, but also things more rocky/garrage-like, like with his band Y Bandana, he can also do a bit psychedelic and otherworldly music with another band he’s a part of, which is Plu, and also kind of sophisticated, idyllic and moving folk music like on his debut solo album. And this song I want to show you today – “Da Gennyf Air O Ganu” – is of this last kind. I love when people are so versatile, and I particularly like it in music. I’ve heard this song in a slightly different arrangement before the album was released in Lisa Gwilym’s show on BBC Radio Cymru, and that version was maybe even more expressive. I even thought about posting that version from Radio Cymru, but I love them both so much so literally couldn’t decide. 😀 The thing that finally helped me make the decision was that if I’d choose the radio version, I’d have to cut it out from the programme, which would take me much more time, plus on the computer I am now I don’t even have a decent app for sound editing. So yeah I chose the album version and I put it in my Dropbox and will remove it after a month. I just love it how any kind of music he does is so expressive. I’m curious about your opinion. 🙂
