-I'm great. We've had a great day.

-It's exciting, really exciting.

0:06:520:06:56

-You're breaking new ground.

0:06:570:06:59

-Some people have said you have

-to see the game but you don't.

0:07:000:07:04

-It's like a symphony.

0:07:050:07:06

-There's no need to visit Finlandia

-to enjoy Sibelius.

0:07:070:07:10

-There's a sense of the atmosphere

-of the game...

0:07:110:07:14

-..but it's something more than that,

-all the universe comes together.

0:07:150:07:19

-I met him at Cor Cymru

-when he was a judge.

0:08:000:08:02

-I was only allowed to speak to him

-at the end, but I did then.

0:08:030:08:06

-He was an amiable man.

0:08:070:08:08

-As a conductor,

-he has a great presence.

0:08:090:08:11

-He brings everyone together

-and he's very relaxed.

0:08:120:08:15

-We've had a wonderful time.

0:08:150:08:17

-I asked him what it was like

-to conduct your own music.

0:08:180:08:21

-He said he picked holes

-as he went through it...

0:08:210:08:24

-..and saw ways

-of improving the music.

0:08:250:08:28

-To be honest, his music is perfect.

0:08:290:08:31

-Nothing suits the eisteddfod

-more than tonight.

-# Dost thou know

0:21:250:21:32

-# Who made thee? #

0:21:320:21:43

-The stage is always filled

-with colour...

0:21:440:21:46

-..when a choir from

-The Philippines is present.

0:21:470:21:50

-Today was no exception.

0:21:500:21:52

-The stage was awash

-with red and blue colours...

0:21:530:21:56

-..and silver shoes.

0:21:560:21:58

-Their first song impressed me under

-the total control of all the voices.

0:21:580:22:03

-They entertained

-the audience greatly.

0:22:040:22:07

-# Non nobis Domine

0:22:370:22:39

-One was Beth Yw'r Haf I Mi?

0:22:390:22:41

-The second was called Fflwff

-by Gareth Glyn.

0:22:420:22:45

-It was under complete control, as

-you'd expect from Cor Ceredigion.

0:22:460:22:50

-The laughter from the audience

-at the end summed up the song.

0:22:510:22:55

-# Rwy'n gwenu

-How difficult will it be for the

-adjudicators to make a decision?

0:23:190:23:23

-very difficult.

0:23:240:23:26

-I've chosen four choirs

-that impressed me.

0:23:270:23:29

-Another four

-could have impressed the judges.

0:23:300:23:33

-The standard was that high and

-it could come down to half points.

0:23:330:23:38

-For Mari, who wins?

0:23:380:23:39

-I'm going to be honest,

-it's The Philippines for me.

0:23:400:23:43

-We'll find out if the judges

-agreed with Mari after the break.

-They're happy even if they arrived

-in Wales very late last night.

0:24:520:24:56

-How does it feel to hold the trophy?

0:24:570:24:59

-It was a shock for us to win

-these two trophies.

0:25:030:25:06

-It's a huge honour.

0:25:070:25:08

-We had problems travelling over

-and missed the plane.

0:25:090:25:12

-We're happy to be here

-and happy with our success.

0:25:130:25:16

-Excellent.

-Warm congratulations to you.

0:25:170:25:20

-A festival like this means something

-different to different people.

0:25:220:25:27

-What does it means for us Welsh?

0:25:280:25:30

-We asked commentator and lecturer

-Manon Edwards Ahir.

0:25:310:25:35

-The Llangollen International

-Eisteddfod takes place...

0:25:370:25:41

-..on the same week every year

-in this glorious corner of Wales.

0:25:420:25:46

-What does the Llangollen Eisteddfod

-mean to the Welsh audience?

0:25:460:25:51

-Is it a musical festival...

0:25:510:25:53

-..an eisteddfod worthy of a slot

-in our competition calendar.

0:25:540:25:58

-Or is it a multicultural project...

0:25:580:26:00

-..a kind of cultural conference

-of united nations...

0:26:010:26:05

-..that takes place every year

-on the banks of the river Dee.

0:26:060:26:11

-Festivals have become very popular

0:26:110:26:14

-We have plenty of them

-here in Wales.

0:26:150:26:17

-But is the Llangollen Eisteddfod

-on the calendar of us Welsh folk?

0:26:170:26:23

-Have we really embraced this

-eisteddfod as a major festival?

0:26:250:26:29

-Welsh Choirs, schools and groups

-often travel a long way to be here.

0:26:300:26:34

-Many more travel a lot further

-from distant lands.

0:26:350:26:38

-I've been surprised how many

-of my peers who enjoy festivals...

0:26:390:26:43

-..have never been to Llangollen.

0:26:430:26:45

-They have missed out.

0:26:460:26:47

-I've been fortunate to have been

-here a couple of times...

0:26:470:26:51

-..as a visitor and as a competitor.

0:26:510:26:54

-With Cor Canna from Cardiff,

-I was used to performing...

0:26:540:26:58

-..at the National Eisteddfod

-and the Cerdd Dant festival.

0:26:580:27:02

-But competing here was a very

-different experience.

0:27:030:27:06

-This competition

-challenged us as a choir...

0:27:070:27:09

-..from choosing the repertoire

-to the very high standard.

0:27:100:27:14

-It was a different way of competing.

0:27:140:27:17

-What we enjoyed most of all...

0:27:170:27:19

-..was the experience of being

-part of a much wider fellowship.

0:27:190:27:24

-This eisteddfod is unique

-to us here in Wales.

0:27:240:27:27

-It provides a world stage

-and international competitions...

0:27:270:27:31

-..right here in our own backyard.

0:27:320:27:34

-Yes, it does take us out

-of our cosy, Welsh comfort zone.

0:27:340:27:38

-But isn't that a good thing?

0:27:380:27:40

-Culturally, are we as Welsh

-speakers a bit too comfortable...

0:27:410:27:45

-..too inward looking?

0:27:450:27:47

-I'd argue that any culture

-must have new experiences...

0:27:470:27:51

-..in order to question itself

-and to evolve.

0:27:510:27:55

-My kids are half Punjabi and have

-the same heritage as these dancers.

0:27:560:28:01

-They are used to weddings

-and family celebrations...

0:28:020:28:05

-..so they know about good dancing.

0:28:060:28:08

-Maybe I have had to be more open...

0:28:100:28:12

-..to welcoming a different culture

-into my Welsh life.

0:28:130:28:17

-Possibly more so than other people.

0:28:170:28:20

-It has been a precious experience.

0:28:200:28:23

-With today's world more unsettled

-than it has been for many years...

0:28:230:28:28

-..surely we should

-embrace any opportunity...

0:28:280:28:31

-..to appreciate one another.

0:28:320:28:34

-Our Welsh culture is enriched

-by understanding others.

0:28:340:28:38

-The answer is with the young people

-who have been here all week.

0:28:380:28:43

-We shall see where they take

-this eisteddfod in the future.

0:28:430:28:47

-In the meantime,

-come and enjoy Llangollen.

0:28:480:28:51

-There are a number of competitions

-still to come tonight.

0:28:550:28:59

-The International Voice

-of The Future...

0:28:590:29:02

-..the acapella groups,

-the folk song instrumental...

0:29:020:29:06

-..but we turn our sights

-to the instrumental ensemble.

-there are four of us in the band.

0:31:430:31:48

-We started as a local band

-in Cardiff.

0:31:480:31:51

-You've grown since those early days.

-How often do you meet?

0:31:520:31:56

-Once a week, on Monday.

0:31:560:31:58

-Do you perform in concerts,

-do you compete?

0:31:590:32:02

-Concerts, mostly. We visited

-Germany a fortnight ago.

0:32:020:32:05

-That was fun.

0:32:060:32:07

-The social aspect

-is very important to you.

0:32:070:32:10

-Are there trombonists in the band?

0:32:100:32:13

-Not at the moment.

0:32:130:32:15

-Are you looking around for one?

0:32:150:32:17

-There's one enthusiastic trombonist

-here who's OK.

0:32:170:32:21

-He's a bit rusty right now

-but he can practise.

0:32:210:32:24

-We're always on the look out

-for trombonists.

0:32:240:32:27

-I'll hook up with you

-the next time I'm in Cardiff.

0:32:270:32:30

-Congratulations, Cathays Brass.

0:32:310:32:33

-More of the day's competitions

-after the break...

0:32:330:32:36

-..and we'll also be entertained

-by a dance group from India.

0:32:360:32:40

-First, let's enjoy

-a lively, colourful performance...

0:32:410:32:44

0:35:080:35:12

-Our quartet is called Limelight.

0:35:120:35:14

-We heard about Llangollen

-on the internet.

0:35:150:35:17

-We were thinking about

-doing a tour of the UK.

0:35:180:35:21

-We found this festival

-and decided it was for us.

0:35:210:35:24

-Glad you made it. All the best.

0:35:240:35:26

0:35:340:35:36

0:35:360:35:38

0:35:420:35:44

-Our director, Joseph Huszti,

-came here in 1965 and won.

0:35:450:35:49

-We're back here again in 2017.

0:35:500:35:52

-Before you sing for us.

-Why Men in BlaQUE?

0:35:530:35:56

-It was a way to make us different

-from the movie - Men in Black.

0:35:570:36:01

-We do all wear black.

0:36:020:36:04

-Good luck to you all

-in the competition.

-say you are the new day

0:39:200:39:24

-Congratulations to you

-Ysgol Gerdd Ceredigion.

0:39:250:39:28

-What does it feel like

-to hold this in your hands?

0:39:300:39:33

-It's a pleasure

-despite it being quite heavy.

0:39:340:39:37

-Do you enjoy A capella signing?

0:39:390:39:41

-It's quite different and new to us.

0:39:420:39:44

-Straight to the top

-at your first attempt.

0:39:450:39:49

-Did you enjoy

-one song in particular?

0:39:500:39:52

-The final song, Fat Al's

-Jazz Emporium is a joyful song.

0:39:530:39:57

-You can really let go

-and enjoy the music.

0:39:590:40:02

-Once again, Islwyn Evans,

-you rise to the top in Wales.

0:40:030:40:06

-You wave the flag for Wales.

0:40:070:40:09

-A new challenge was nice.

0:40:090:40:11

-We're very used to the choral

-competitions here.

0:40:120:40:15

-It's nice to see the Eisteddfod

-moving forward with A capella.

0:40:160:40:20

-There's a different kind

-of artistry required.

0:40:220:40:26

-There's no conductor so the girls

-had no-one to hide behind.

0:40:290:40:34

-I'm sure you guided them

-in the right direction.

0:40:340:40:37

-The trophy is over there.

0:40:380:40:39

-Have you lost count of

-how many trophies you have won...

0:40:400:40:43

-..with Ysgol Gerdd Ceredigion?

0:40:440:40:46

-It's nine for Ysgol Cerdd and five

-for Cywair which makes fourteen.

0:40:460:40:51

-Fourteen. The mantelpiece

-must be buckling under the weight.

0:40:510:40:56

-..were out to relax and let off

-some steam after a long journey.

0:41:010:41:06

-We come from Punjab in India.

0:41:060:41:08

-We're called the

-Real Folk Cultural Academy.

0:41:090:41:12

-We've been together since 2009.

0:41:120:41:15

-There are many similarities

-between our countries.

0:41:220:41:26

-Our land is very green

-but perhaps a little flatter.

0:41:260:41:30

-The mountains makes Wales

-more beautiful. It's very nice here.

0:41:300:41:35

-I look forward every year

-to seeing the different costumes...

0:41:430:41:47

-..being worn by groups coming

-from as far afield as India.

0:41:480:41:52

-We take an interest in them

-and they take an interest in us.

0:41:530:41:57

-My wife has been looking after

-this group from India.

0:42:040:42:08

-She's been in touch with them

-for many months.

0:42:080:42:12

-She's arranged meetings with them

-in Llangollen during the week.

0:42:130:42:17

-Bye-bye, bye-bye.

0:42:180:42:21

-It's an unique festival. It's

-a big competition to participate in.

0:42:220:42:27

-We don't come to Llangollen

-to win competitions...

0:42:280:42:32
