BIO

ABM is delighted to be working with this incredibly talented composer and multi-instrumentalist from Machynlleth, Wales, where rivers and roads meet on the way to the sea. Cerys mangles, mutates, and transforms traditional music; exploring the creative possibilities and unique qualities of the triple harp, whilst delving into found sounds, archive materials and electronic processing. Cerys has won over audiences from Green Man to the Eisteddfod and from BBC 6 Music Festival to Celtic Connections with her magical, progressive sound.

Her second album Edyf was selected as one of The Guardian’s Top Ten albums of 2022, as well as receiving wide-spread media attention and critical acclaim.

‘…she’s an adept shapeshifter, entwining tradition with direct and personal interpretations to create music that’s both progressive, profound and inspiring.’ Alex Gallagher, Folk Radio UK

‘Hafana explores resonances from the past that connect with the modern day in a contemporary, creative way… she uses her harp as a percussive, jagged-toothed tool… sings movingly, her high voice like an indie-pop soprano shorn of its sweetness.’ Jude Rogers, The Guardian.
