Dear colleagues,

I can't find a videoclip and/or an article that I saw/read a while ago
about how Welsh was becoming a "cool" language for young people because of
a new generation of musicians using Welsh in hip hop, rap, and in other
styles of alternative music. The video showed a festival, maybe Eisteddfod
or Tafwyl, and also an interview of the musicians talking about why they
sign in Welsh.  These styles of music were not associated with traditional
forms of singing in Welsh, for instance, folk musicians or choir music.

Does anybody recall seeing this videoclip?
