I’m only just getting into Welsh modern music and surprised at how much there is to discover !

I was just listening to Radio Cymru and I had to rewind and listen to this again. I recorded it on my phone to do a Goggle search as I couldn’t find it and couldn’t understand what was being said. This is gorgeous.

I love this song too. It features on Al Lewis’ new CD which is Te yn y Grug. Al composed the music for the show of the same name which was performed at the Eisteddfod last year and Glain Rhys was one of the cast. Leisa Gwenllian (daughter of Beca Brown) also starred in it and talks about it in some of the SSIW advanced material. It’s based on the book of the same name by Kate Roberts. They televised the show a while ago but not sure if it’s still available to watch. Al had started a tour, performing music from the album just before lockdown so most didn’t happen. I had tickets for the Pwllheli performance but it was cancelled. Hoping he continues with it once normality returns. :smiley:

I love this, the musical arrangement of the first song took me back to the Western Highlands and Islands of Scotland while the lyrics brought me to Wales. Two of my favourite destinations.

Tua blwyddyn yn ôl, ar ddiwrnod gwlyb o haf fel heddiw, treuliais amser yn ffilmio gyda Lauren Everett. Mi oedd hi wedi dod yr holl ffordd o’r UD i wneud ffilm am Gymru, gwreiddiau, hiraeth a llawer mwy…

Ta waith, fe lwyddon ni gael y fersiwn gweithredol hwn o Ffarwel I Aberystwyth yn Capel Y Graig yn Eglwysfach. Am ddarn o lwc bod y ceir tu allan yn swnio fel tonnau’r môr - mwynhewch!

Only on Level 1/week 8/Challenge 7 but loved this recording although I don’t understand most of the words

Thankyou @nicola-loveridge, that’s just reminded me why I need to listen to more Steve Eaves! Love the sounds he makes.

Hi, perhaps a bit ‘experimental’, but here’s something that I was commissioned to write and record for the National Library of Wales using archival content. The YouTube video should start at the music, but there’s also a couple of minutes with me talking at the start. Really interesting project.

For anyone interested check out Recordiau Prin, based in North Wales. They release some really interesting music from Wales, Dave Datblygu is on the label as well as myself, but all kinds of things are done as limited runs. Really good to support local labels - I really like Heligoland on this release, it uses shipping records from Aberystwyth Harbour and was performed at Storiel in Bangor before the lockdown, with an audience! I think that the image should act as a link https://recordiauprin.bandcamp.com/album/the-loss-of-one

Taliesin wyf fi
Perffaith fy ngherdd i
Canaf hyd ddydd y farn
Fi yw Taliesin
Rwy’n deall dirgelion
Pam bod buwch yn gorniog a dynes yn chwannog
Pam bod halen yn hallt a barf ar fyn gafr
Pam bod llaeth yn wyn a’r egroes yn goch
Pam bo’r hydd yn frith
Pam bod cen ar bysgodyn
Pam bod alarch yn wyn er bod ganddo draed du
Rwy’n gwybod pam
Pam bod nos yn disgyn a’r haul yn codi
A’r ser yn troi trwy rewynt am byth
Lle mae cwcw’r haf yn byw yn y gaeaf
Pa fwystfilod sy’n byw dan eigion y môr
Sawl gwaywffon sydd mewn brwydr
Sawl diferyn mewn cawod
Pam y boddwyd pobl yr Aifft dan y don
Taliesin wyf fi
Rwy’n gwybod y cyfan; profais y cyfan
Bûm ar bob ffurf
Bûm yn gi, yn hydd, yn iwrch ar y mynydd
Yn gyff, yn rhaw, yn fwyell mewn llaw
Bûm yn ebill mewn gefail am flwyddyn a hanner
Bûm yn geiliog brithwyn yn sengu ar ieir
Bûm yn ronyn o ŷd ar ochr y mynydd
Cyn i ddyn dod a’m fedi
Disgynnais i’r llawr, daeth iâr heibio a’m bwyta
Bûm naw diwrnod a noswaith yn dwym yn ei chro’
Bûm yn ddyn ac yn dduw
Bûm farw; bûm fyw
Taliesin wyf fi
Perffaith fy ngherdd i
Byw bydd fy awen hyd ddiwedd y byd.
