Huw M – Os Mewn Swn

"I don’t speak Welsh and have not one inkling of what Huw M’s gentle, warm voice is murmuring throughout Os Mewn Swn. But still, it’s entrancing listening to a stream of what sounds, to the uneducated, like beautiful gibberish, delivered with unwavering calm and tinged with melancholy. Huw M takes traditional Welsh folk songs and retains that stripped down nature, bringing the focus inevitably back to his voice and to this sense of an intangible past, a history buried in the blended consonants."
