Taking inspiration from modal tradition, spiritual jazz and global folk music, Awen journey through spoken word, shimmering instrumentation and a Celtic mystique, conjuring a sound that is both melodically focussed and groove driven. Their name, meaning ‘poetic inspiration’ in Welsh, outlines the intention of their music to explore folkloric heritage, landscape and the human mind, inspiring audiences to reflect on and connect with these subjects.
