We Are A Musical Nation

Despite the growing visibility of Welsh within Wales, how many of you monoglot English speaking Welsh men and women know about what's going on in the Welsh speaking world? I'm not being critical here, by the way, just pointing out the obvious. We live in the same country, share the same roots, maybe even live on the same street, but to a certain extent both culturally and politically we live in two different dimensions. David Lynch would probably love us. But why harp on about it when instead we can share our realities?

Those of you who -not knowing the lingo- never watch S4/C digidol nor listen to Radio Cymru may be quite oblivious to just how much the Welsh Language music scene has flourished since entering the 21st century. 10 years ago there were some good bands but there was also a lot of, well, shall we say not-so-good bands (to be polite). Now what we have is a more musically diverse and plentiful supply of young musicians with the same musical standards as their English counterparts. So without any further ado here's a small selection for your delight and pleasure:

Sibrydion: Chiwawas

Drymbago: Anian

Genod Droog: Dal Ni Lawr

Radio Luxembourg: Os Chi'n Lladd Cindy

Sibrydion: Rhedeg i Ffwrdd

Gwilym Morus: Ar Ddisberod

Dan Amor: Lluniau Du a Gwyn

Swci Boscawen: Adar y Nefoedd

Rhian Mostyn: Hawl y Mynydd

Y Llongau: Rheoli Amser

Dan Amor: Cofiadau
