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.

Welsh soprano Elin Manahan Thomas is just one singer keeping the tradition alive, she sang beautifully at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and we hosted the famous Cardiff Singer of the World competition last year won by Mezzo soprano Catriona Morison. 

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