Arigato. Diolch. Thank you.

Thanks for taking part and supporting Wales in the Rugby World Cup 2019, Japan.

We supported Wales in their campaign through song, singing Calon Lân to take the team further into the competition!

Calon Lân is the unofficial anthem sung by Wales’ rugby fans, so we asked everyone who supported Wales to learn the song and join in with us to cheer the team on.

Both the Land of Song and the Land of the Rising Scrum broke out in harmony, with singing in Tokyo, Kitakyushu, Yokohama and Oita.

We used the renditions of Calon Lân singing to our special backing track videos below to energise the Wales team. Mei Gwynedd’s classic electric guitar karaoke track was the perfect accompaniment – and was used at home, in schools, clubs, and choirs.

We collected the videos together as you can see below, with many videos coming in from Wales and Japan, and videos from Wales supporters in Australia, South Africa, Argentina and England too.

Mei Gwynedd’s classic electric guitar karaoke track is the perfect accompanyment for you – at home, in schools, clubs, choir or band practice. Just make sure everyone in your video or soundtrack has given their consent to be filmed or recorded, and for us to use your film or recording in broadcasts and on social media as part of the #calonlan campaign.

Once you’ve done it – share this website with others so they can join the virtual #calonlan world choir. We want to create a Welsh soundtrack that will grow and grow.

With thanks to Mei Gwynedd, Glenda Jones, Griff Lynch, Côr y Gleision, National Dance Company of Wales (choreographer Fergus Ó Conchúir), Jac a Cai Williams, Welsh Rugby Union, Glynneath RFC, Nant Conwy RFC, Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Cymru, Zac Mather, Donal Whelan, Dafydd Hughes, Dai Williams, Lens 360, and all the people who contributed.
