Gwenno x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Y Gwefrau (The Charges)

I had to include Y Gwefrau as they went to the same secondary school as me and are from Cardiff. This is more at the pop end of the spectrum but I love this video, it's just young women being carefree and having a laugh and there's nothing more empowering than that... Continue reading…
