Lisa Lan

Lisa Lân or Fair Lisa is a traditional Welsh folk-song.  It is a lover’s lament about his lost dead love, Lisa.

Lisa Lân is a hauntingly beautiful melody and has been covered by a number of popular artists including Cerys Matthews and Katherine Jenkins.  It was used extensively within the soundtrack for Paul Haggis’s 2004 film Crash, a tense race relations film set in Los Angeles.

Percussion plays a key role in this arrangement and includes, unusually, a part for acoustic guitar or synthesizer.
