This audio is an interpolation of two different audio recordings. Y fam a’l Baban is an old Welsh song about a mother and her child. The other recording is the first Lesson of English language – 1st Record, Page One, Chapter One. Both recordings (on 78 rpm records) are found on boot sales and antique shops.

The idea was to confront the old traditional Welsh language with the British Empire and it’s English language imposition.

The audio English Lesson was made during the project Sense in Place
