Gwenno is a musician and conceptual artist from Cardiff, Wales. Her debut album, Y Dydd Olaf, won the Welsh Music Prize 2015 and Le Kov, her critically acclaimed second album, was written and sung entirely in Cornish. Le Kov translates as ‘Place of Memory’, and includes the song Tir ha Mor (land and sea) which was directly inspired by the work of Peter Lanyon.
