Brand New for 2018 Bardd is the latest creative output for North Wales Hip Hop Legends Martin Daws (Young People's Laureate Wales 2013-16) and Ed Holden/Mr Phormula (Wales Looping Champion 2016). Pulling in the best of oral tradition from the roots of the Welsh Bards to contemporary Spoken Word and Emceeing in a distinctive bilingual lyrical masterclass. Bardd build their sound on the harp-like repeats of Martin's Kalimba and the technical brilliance of Ed's Human Beatbox and Live Looping, expanding the musicality of the collaboration with an outstanding ensemble of North Wales musicians featuring Neil Yates (Trumpet), Henry Horrell (Guitar/Strings), Colin Daimond (Percussion) and Voice Specialist Huw Llywelyn.
Supported by Arts Council Wales and developed in association with Pontio, this showcase is the very first performance of Bardd: the original, lyrical, authentically global North Wales Hip Hop collective.
