Cerys Hafana is a composer and multi-instrumentalist who mangles, mutates, and transforms traditional music. She explores the creative possibilities and unique qualities of the triple harp and is also interested in found sounds, archival
materials, and electronic processing. She comes from Machynlleth, Wales, where
rivers and roads meet on the way to the sea. Cerys has won over audiences from Green Man to the Eisteddfod and from BBC 6 Music Festival to Celtic Connections with her magical, progressive sound.
 
Her second album Edyf was selected as one of The Guardian’s Top Ten albums of
2022, as well as receiving widespread media attention and critical acclaim. 
 
"She’s an adept shapeshifter, entwining tradition with direct and personal
interpretations to create music that’s both progressive, profound, and inspiring."
Alex Gallagher, Folk Radio UK
 
"Hafana explores resonances from the past that connect with the modern day in
a contemporary, creative way... she uses her harp as a percussive, jagged-
toothed tool… sings movingly, her high voice like an indie-pop soprano shorn of
its sweetness." Jude Rogers, The Guardian.
