#OurValleys is a song created by the Valleys, for the Valleys, in partnership with primary schools across the region, bilingual singer/songwriter Kizzy Crawford and Community Music Wales.
Written and developed entirely within the Valleys community, the song has evoked feelings of pride when asking children why they love to live in the area. The soundtrack will be released on 9 July 2018 on Spotify for the world to hear.

The song is part of the work of the Valleys Taskforce whose new initative strives to inspire the people in the Valleys to be proud of their community and in good Welsh tradition, sing loud about it for others to hear.
Alun Davies, Cabinet Secretary for Local Government and Public Services and Chair of the Taskforce said:
“There are so many beautiful things about the Valleys, the people, the landscape and sense of community. We want to celebrate this with the people of the Valleys and beyond and shout about it.”
The Valleys Taskforce are working with the people of the Valleys to establish good quality jobs and the skills to do them, better public services and develop the area as a place where communities are empowered and their local environment is easily accessible, widely used and at the heart of Valleys life.
As part of this project, local community groups, bands and schools are invited to post their own take on the song, tagging the films with @TalkValleys and hashtag #OurValleys #EinCymoedd
