Watch: It’s Calon Lân but not as you’ve ever heard it before
Bronwen Lewis is back with her latest offering – and if you’re a fan of Calon Lân and funky vibes you’re going to love it.
The singer who loves to take popular songs and cover them in Welsh, has recorded her take on the classic Welsh song – it’s Calon Lân, but not as you’ve ever heard it before.
In a post on Tik Tok she accompanies a devilishly funky bass line, the singer putting the words to Calon Lân over the top – and it sounds brilliant!

Bronwen’s take on the Welsh standard comes after her last offering, her Cymraeg version of Harry Styles’ ‘As It Was’.
The song debuted at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Styles’ second chart-topping song, after ‘Watermelon Sugar’. It also entered at the top of the UK Singles chart, becoming his second number one song in the UK, after ‘Sign of the Times’.

Bronwen, a former contestant on The Voice, has made something of a name for herself with her videos that promote the Welsh language on social media platforms such as TikTok and Twitter.
She recently thrilled her fans with Yma o Hyd, a beautiful Welsh version of Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac for Halloween, accompanying herself on keyboards, and prior to that brought us Runaway by The Corrs.
Bronwen hit the headlines in June when she gave Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard a harmonious rendition of the Welsh national anthem ahead of Wales’ round 16 Euro 2020 clash with Denmark.
