Biography

Active: 1960s-2000s
Country Of origin: Wales

Dafydd Iwan was one of the first successful musicians to come out of the Welsh rock scene. Although he claims, "There are no stars in Wales", citing small audiences and minimal financial rewards, Iwan has attracted attention despite his committment to singing in the Welsh language. Iwan's biggest hit, "Yma O'Hyd (Still Here)," released in 1981, has become an anthem in his homeland. Iwan has continued to make this presence felt, financing an independant recording studio, Recordiu Sain. ~ Craig Harris~ Rovi
