Cerys Hafana

Cerys Hafana (GBR)Cerys Hafana from Wales is a composer and multi-instrumentalist. She plays telyn deires or Welsh triple harp – so-named for its three parallel courses of strings. Expect Welsh psalmody, chapel and pre-Christian spookiness, spaciness and original compositions. Reviewing her second album Edyf (‘thread’), the Guardian’s folk critic Jude Rogers wrote, ‘she uses her harp as a percussive, jagged-toothed tool with which she excavates songs from the Welsh National Library’s archives.’ A Rudolstadt must-see.
