It's part of Welsh culture and there's nothing else that can represent your own history and roots and their future more than your own musical culture.Fiona Richie
Wales has a rich musical heritage, and although many of its traditional instruments are not commonly heard, there are still musicians keeping the folk tradition alive, arranging and performing melodies that have been popular for centuries.
