• Martyn Joseph - Broken Peace - Tonypandy  1910-2010  (2010)

with Ysgol Gyfum Y Cymer and Toneypandy Community College (Andrew Griffiths - Musical Director)

In November 2010, Martyn took part in a very special project to mark the 100th Anniversary of the Tonypandy Riots of 1910. He was joined by students from Tonypandy Community College and Ysgol Gyfun Y Cymer , and they wrote songs and undertook a performance that helps to answer some of the questions about the events of 100 years ago…… "Who were the people from the valleys who struggled through unimaginable hardship with courage, strength, and typical Welsh humour?" "What were their lives like during this struggle and how does this resonate with us today?" This period of time within the Rhondda Valleys may have culminated in the riotous events of 1910, but the unique live music event was more than just remembering a single day… In was insight into the thoughts, emotions, fears and strengths of people of the Valleys their story is told in songs written especially for the event by Martyn. This CD was released at the same time and features the songs written by Martyn and the students themselves and performed by them all. It's a testament to a very special event and a real tribute to the people of 100 years ago.
