Song of the day – Betsan Hâf Evans – Eleri.

Hi all. 🙂

Today I come to you with another fabulous Welsh song which I’ve heard for the first time a few weeks ago and liked it immediately. It is very positive. Betsan Hâf Evans was one of the participants of last year’s Cân I Gymru (Song For Wales) contest and she performed this song. I also like it because I am a name nerd and Eleri is one of my favourite Welsh girl names, I think it’s so melodic and just absolutely lovely.

You may notice that I will favour Welsh language music a bit in the next few days more than music in any other language and it’s first and foremost because Welsh Language Music Day is coming very soon. I can’t wait and I am hoping for discovering lots of new music. Plus currently it is the language I am focusing on the most because is the newest one in my language “collection” and I still have a lot to learn, while English and Swedish are just ones I am kind of polishing. And because of how focused I am recently on the Welsh language, I make lots of new Welsh music discoveries. And I am always pro minor/extincting languages.

OK, so here’s the song. 🙂

Song of the day – Fi A Fo – “Dagra” (Tears).

Hey! 🙂

The song I picked for yu guys for today is a song from the band Fi A Fo.

They are a duo from north Wales, their songs, or at least these I know, are all in Welsh. Fi A Fo literally means “me and him” and the duo consists of Mali Llyfni and Rhys Jones.

This is my favourite song by them and its title – “Dagra” – means “tears” in English.
