Cân: affricerdd is an opportunity for music-creators of African descent living and working in Wales to write a new song (in any language and musical genre) and create a music video of the new work. 

Mirari More, N'famady Kouyaté, Ogun, and Skunkadelic (Tumi Williams) were selected after an open call to artists to create a new work for cân: affricerdd. This programme is one of the strands of Tapestri, Tŷ Cerdd's new initiative helping to create a living musical archive of the people, languages and communities of Wales – and is funded through Arts Council of Wales's Connect & Flourish programme.
