Since 1983, Robin Huw Bowen has introduced the Welsh Triple Harp & its music to thousands all over the world: the only full-time professional Welsh harpist specializing solely in the Welsh Triple Harp, his influence on the world of Welsh folk music & harping has been far-reaching. His 2015 album for Sain, "Iaith Enaid / The Language of the Soul", features a mix of the old & new; some tunes are composed by Robin himself, inspired by his numerous tours abroad, & other experiences such as his time working with Y Glerorfa here in Wales. Other tracks are arrangements of Welsh traditional tunes by Robin Huw Bowen specifically for the triple harp. Robin also has a great interest in the music of the Welsh gypsy harpists, & the track ‘Pibddawnsiau Sipsi Newydd / New Gypsy Hornpipes’ is in keeping with the unique style of those harpists, the Roberts & Wood families.
