What if your mother tongue is an ancient language of a land that you've never lived in, whose native speakers have only recently broken 200 years' silence? What if the only place it has ever existed over the years is hundreds of miles away, in your home and your heart? Le Kov (The Place of Memory) is the second solo album by Welsh singer-songwriter and musician, Gwenno Saunders. Created alongside long-term collaborator and producer, Rhys Edwards, with additional drum engineering by Gorwel Owen (Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, Super Furry Animals) and mixing and additional programming by David Wrench, it is an exploration of the individual and collective subconcious & the 'dream state', the myths and drolls of Cornwall, and the history of the survival of our lesser known Brythonic language. It's also one of 2018's most beautiful and stirring records, swirling with ancient myths and urgent modern themes.
