Vinyl LP pressing. Never one to sit still, Carwyn Ellis is continuing his voyage into Latin Americana with the release of his second album with Rio 18, Mas. Like itÆs predecessor, the acclaimed Joia!, this album is a collection of songs sung in Welsh combined with distinct pop and South American flavors drawn from Bossa Nova, Cumbia, Samba and Tropicalismo styles, recorded in Rio de Janeiro, Caernarfon and London. Mas feels strangely right for our times: an album whose title means several things, as befits its global outlook. Mas means ôoutö in Welsh, ômoreö in Spanish, and ôbutö in Portuguese: these meanings filling that single syllable with promise, potential, but also the subtle edge of a warning. ItÆs a mood that fits the more political tenor of Rio 18Æs second turn around the world, as Carwyn and his friends explore some substantial subjects: the drowning of villages, climate change, migration and the rise of megacities. They do so not in sober, serious settings, but beautiful, uplifting songs. Other tracks also celebrate the vivid pleasures of love, nature and our essential humanity. Mas is a record of beautiful songs that says, wait, listen, delight, come together, then act. We owe it to ourselves, to each other, to our beautiful world.
