Rapper Sage Todz on what young artists are doing for the Welsh language

The 1990s was the era of ‘Cool Cymru’ with the rise of the Stereophonics, Manic Street Preachers and Catatonia.

Now it’s Welsh rap that’s on the rise, and one person who’s helping to breathe new life into Welsh language music is the rapper Sage Todz.

The bilingual artist is flying the Welsh flag in the UK rap scene after his family moved from Essex to a small village in Wales.

Sage’s music draws on his own experience of identity, community and determination.
