9Bach - 29/10

Thank you for tuning in to 9Bach's immersive audio stream. Please continue to listen to the WOMAD at Home series, with the last session in our series going live on Thursday 5th November at 8pm.

9Bach - Recording on location

9Bach’s music is an atmospheric, evocative and emotional hybrid of the Welsh folk tradition, and of contemporary influences and working practices. Building on a deepened, almost ambient sound picture, the songs take you into the landscape and the emotions that it evokes.

9Bach’s WOMAD at Home session is a journey through rural North Wales, capturing Lisa Jên Brown’s haunting vocals in unique acoustic spaces. Through music and chat, 9Bach bring to life the history and folklore of their locality.
