9Bach have grown from a group that rework and reinterpret Welsh language folk song to fully fledged contemporary song-writers looking deeply into their culture and opening it up to the wider world. Their unique mix of harp, harmonium, glockenspiel with bass, drums and driving guitar builds a haunting, beguiling sound. Singer Lisa Jen’s exquisite vocals rise above intriguing arrangements.
Following their critically-acclaimed debut 2009 album ‘9Bach’ their new release ‘Tincian’ will be released on Real World Records in Spring 2014. They will be the closing act at this week’s WOMEX Festival on Saturday night in Cardiff on the Horizons (Weston Studio) stage at the Wales Millennium Centre.
