In this compilation you will discover a range of artists and genres, but with the Welsh language at the heart of the music. Welsh or Cymraeg is the indigenous Celtic language of Britain, still spoken widely in communities across Wales and in diasporas around the world, most notably in Patagonia, Argentina. J.R.R. Tolkien famously said that "Welsh is of this soil, this island, the senior language of the men of Britain; and Welsh is beautiful". The word for music in Welsh is cerdd which also means poem, the two are inseparable. You will hear in this collection both traditional and contemporary music and poetry in Welsh and English. Gwledda means 'to feast' and we hope that you will enjoy feasting on this exciting compilation of new music from Wales.
