The word Hafana is a Welsh variant of the original Havana, Cuba. Elin says she is fascinated by the place but also mentions that the title is a play on words as Hafana or more accurately hafan is Welsh for haven - "...a place to escape. Many of my lyrics are about escaping from things – even escaping from reality, especially the realities that hit you when you leave home and go out into the world by yourself." says Elin.
Elin has recently presented a Welsh music road-show Nodyn on S4C as well as working on more TV projects and began touring with the album's material in 2009. "I love playing live and meeting an audience – it's my favourite thing. With this album, I want to take my music to more people. I'd like to travel the world singing – then come back to Wales of course!" Elin said on S4C.
