Welsh music

The land of song...

Wales has a strong musical heritage and a reputation as the land of song. On these pages, we hope to tell you a little about our constantly evolving Welsh music scene steeped in tradition.

In 2013, Wales' capital city of Cardiff hosted WOMEX 13. This was testament not only to our great musical heritage, but also to Wales’ growing reputation for being able to stage major international events.

Discover more about our music instruments, the Llangollen Music Eisteddfod choral traditions, classical music and other music genres, up to the current day.
