NYAW and WMC launch Hard Côr

Hard Côr is a vocal collective for young people, bringing those aged 16–25 who live in Cardiff together to sing, rap, beatbox and create music.

The group are influenced by a range of contemporary styles, including hip-hop, grime, rap and RnB, and celebrate Wales’s increasingly innovative music scene. The group’s purpose is to broaden opportunities for young and talented Welsh music makers who wish to sing and vocalise in non-traditional styles at the highest level, enabling them to work with some of the country’s most impressive musical practitioners.

“It felt like another family and community full of diversity. — Hard Côr participant, 2022

Three facilitators who specialise in different areas led and supported this first project. They were: Dionne Bennett – soul singer (singing) Tumi Williams – MC, lyricist and Creative Associate at Wales Millennium Centre (mcing) Matthew Hann – beatboxer and arts facilitator (beatboxing)
