Dafydd who recently performed on the Cardiff City Stadium pitch, with pictures broadcast worldwide,  soaked to the bone by the Welsh rain and his own tears, bellowing out his iconic anthem Yma o Hyd, with backing vocals from the Red Wall and Gareth Bale and co,  as the team qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 64 years.  
 
The resurrection of Yma o Hyd, Iwan’s folk anthem about the Welsh people and language, has reinvigorated a nation. The Red Wall belting out ‘Er gwaetha pawb a phopeth, Ry’n ni yma o hyd’ (‘Despite everyone and everything, we are still here’) is something that Iwan still can’t quite believe is happening.
“I never thought in a million years that 40 years later, Yma o Hyd would have the effect it has,”  “I only ever thought about my next concert. I wrote the song and a few others for a tour we did with Ar Log.
“It was written deliberately to raise spirits to finish off the night at shows after the 1979 referendum (Welsh devolution referendum) that had failed miserably. Ar Log arranged and produced the record, so although I wrote the words and music, their arrangement is the one that caught on.
Dafydd believes what the fans and the FAW have created something unique and to be cherished. “ I would like to see as many fans as possible at these two concerts in Merthyr to enjoy the recent success and celebrate Yma O Hydd reaching number one. “ Concerts in the Valleys are always very special, and I will look forward to seeing as many old and new friends at the Soar Theatre in Merthyr “
