Gwenno

Gwenno Mererid Saunders is a Welsh musician born to Welsh and Cornish parents, known by the stage name Gwenno. After releasing a string of EPs for the Welsh label Peski, which saw her expanding her lo-fi electro-pop sound into something bigger and more impressive, she released her first solo album, Y Dydd Olaf, in 2014. The album -- co-produced by Peski co-founder Rhys Edwards, sung entirely in Welsh and Cornish, is based on Owain Owain's 1976 sci-fi novel of the same name. Her second album, Le Kov, was released by Heavenly in early 2018 and is sang entirely in Cornish, discussing colourful themes of Cornish identity and history through the years.
