Always trust a musician who sings about the excellence of cheese. Gwenno’s Eus Keus? (‘Is there cheese?’) features on her 2018 album Le Kov, recorded entirely in Cornish. Forgoing English is not unusual for this Welsh artist: her 2014 debut Y Dydd Olaf is 100% Welsh. Raised with Welsh and Cornish as her first and second languages, Gwenno explores the creative possibilities of small yet time-worn tongues. She spins myths and drolls (oral tales) that marry ancient dreamy lore and shimmering rusted seas with modern elements: synth, technology, and tourists clogging the A30.
