Carwyn Ellis & Rio18 w/ BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Longing for joy and the heady colours of abroad in the grey depths of the pandemic, Carwyn Ellis follows last year’s album Mas — his second with Brazilian musicians Rio 18 — with Yn Rio, a phenomenal live recording of new songs performed by Carwyn, Rio 18, and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. The Colorama frontman and Pretenders sideman describes the music — which continues his marriage of the Welsh language with Brazilian bossa nova — as “songs of hope, history and harmony, recorded in exceptionally challenging circumstances but in a spirit of international brother- and sisterhood, showing just what we can achieve if we dream, work and play together”.
