Lisa Jen from 9Bach gives some insight into the song Llyn Du:
Imagine Cwm Idwal lake or Ogwen lake on a moonlit night. You might come across this deranged and damaged queen under the black shimmering ice cold water:
"I am the queen of the black lake, take me, lead me.
I am eternally impregnated and rejected, by the Beautiful one.
The wind embrace my thighs and the mist caress my breasts
My mind... my mind is... distorted... I am trapped... you trapped me
here... is this The Voice? Yes this is the voice... I hear you...
I embed my 'hiraeth' in your neck... you... you who left me here..."
It's based on the book 'One Moonlit Night' by Caradog Prichard… a novel that had a great affect on me when I was young and still remains my favourite ever Welsh novel.
A video for Llyn Du featuring Lisa filmed in the ice sculpted Cwm Idwal surrounded by some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in Eryri (Snowdonia) coming very soon.
