Hyl

Just wondering whether there's any Welsh music, particularly Welsh language music get played on the radio here? I've been through most of the request section and didn't find many sad.gif

Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra md,
Tros ryddid gollasant eu gwaed.

Gwlad, Gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad.
Tra mr yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,
O bydded i'r hen iaith barhau.

Hen Gymru fynyddig, paradwys y bardd,
Pob dyffryn, pob clogwyn i'm golwg sydd hardd;
Trwy deimlad gwladgarol, mor swynol yw si
Ei nentydd, afonydd i mi.

Os treisiodd y gelyn fy ngwald tan ei droed,
Mae hen iaith y Cymry mor fyw ac erioed,
Ni luddiwyd yr awen gan erchyll law brad,
Na thelyn berseiniol fy ngwlad.

You'd be better to put your question to the Music Forum, which is moderated by Barddas.... MacFive (administrator of the site) looks at requests etc in that forum.

There is a great wealth of Welsh Music History and culture to explore.
Last time I went to Texas and people asked were I was from? The reply Wales would meet with a blank look.
this seems a great shame as Wales and the Welsh have made great contributions to the "American Way"
Just look at American political history.
The Declaration of Independance, Past American Presidents, Solders from the American Civil War, Jack Daniels.
The names of a majority of Black People in America are Welsh, for example Williams, Owens, Powell, Jones, Davies, Griffiths.
(See, Jessie Owens, Colin Powell)
Perhaps We Welsh should push a little more? Who knows?

I also have found no Welsh music as of yet (see my post about Charlotte Church in Celtic Music). My Scottish and Irish blood cells are pleased as punch every time I listen to Highland Radio (even my German and French blood cells are tapping their feet, I won't say what the English are doing because my Celtic cells won't talk to them biggrin.gif ). Now my Welsh cells (Ap Howel and Ap Rhys) are totally unhappy, they shout "what people are best known for their choirs and aren't we Celts too?" sad.gif

There needs to be more welsh music played. The Welsh are celts just like the scottish and irish!

If you want a good Welsh group ask for Mabon, they are truly wonderful.

They went to Aus for the rugby world cup at the behest of the Welsh council and went down well.

Scottish and Irish music is the main stream in this site, but Welsh music deserves a special place. After all Wales has been called the land of music.

People have different tastes, so of course I can't say who is the best, but I can tell you whom I like. I like folk oldies, such as Plethyn, Pigyn Clust, y Brodyr Gregory, Rosalind a Myrddin, Dafydd Iwan, Mary Hopkin, Mynediad am Ddim. More recent(?) singers include Bryn Terfel, Sin James. I don't care for contemporary rock groups though some of them have become popular worldwide.

One of the characteristics of Welsh singers is their amazing harmony. Take Mynediad am Ddim (I think it means Free Access) for example. They are a group of 6 men who don't quite look dashing or brilliant (no offense intended!) BUT, once they start singing, their harmony sends shiver down my spine, honest!

Unfortunately most of Welsh CDs don't seem to include written lyrics. This has been the source of my frustration. I'm not good enough to catch all the words. Then I can't sing the songs I like let alone know exactly what they are singing.

I hear some of Plethyn's CDs come with lyrics. I mean to order one in the near future.

Well, I encourage anyone to add his/her opinions.

Actually, dear, I must apologize, but the only Welsh musician that I am familiar with is Charlotte Church! And I'm not really sure that I wuld classify her as Celtic. Lovely voice, though!

Wizard of Owls,

Thanks! At least someone responded. Charlotte Church is hardly a representative of Welsh music. Even BBC Wales music site doesn't give you the entire picture. You need to dig in and go back in time a bit. Of course, this takes time and you need motivation to do so. I consider this subject closed.

One artist I like, is Jodee James. She's actually from the US, but sings in both Welsh and English.

Aaediwen, I looked up Jodee's profile. Sounds great. I'll look for her songs. Thanks for posting.

When I first found this site and Highlander Radio I asked about Welsh Music but nothing ever came of it. If you know how to contact some of the various Welsh artists maybe you can get some of them to contact Macfive and get their music playing here on Highlander Radio (see this web page: http://www.celticradio.net/php/service_mod....type=musicians)

MacEoghainn,

I'm glad to hear that. I'm afraid I just buy CDs from Sain and don't know the artists' sites.

Aaediwen,

I got one of Jodee's songs, "Trafaeliais y Byd." I love her husky voice. It's so... Celtic. I'm grateful she has lyrics for her songs on her web page. I'm helpless without them. It'll take me a while to figure out the meaning though (and I won't understand everything, I'm sure.) Another favorite added to my collection! Thank you!
