A Theatr Mwldan | Access All Areas | 30IPS Co-Production


Wales and Nubia. Two lands. One shared legacy.


Debuting in Wales in March 2014, Dammed Nations is a music tour featuring singer Siân James & guitarist Gai Toms alongside traditional Nubian frame drummers Nuba Nour from Egypt, collaborating for the first time for what promises to be an enchanting and engaging evening of music from Wales and Nubia.

Political decisions and divisions from 1960s continue to shape the current world and in Dammed Nations, voices from two seemingly unconnected communities unite on stage recalling the fates of the village of Capel Celyn in North Wales - lost to the waters of the Tryweryn Reservoir - and the traditional Nubian homelands in Aswan, Egypt drowned with the construction of President Nasser’s High Dam.

The concerts will feature solo sets by each of the artists along with a special collaboration featuring songs about Tryweryn and the continuing plight of the Nubian people.
