World Music from Wales
As part of its series of art form directories, Wales Arts International has compiled a directory of World Music from Wales. The directory will be used to promote Welsh World Music and will be distributed in festivals such as WOMEX, Celtic Connections and SXSW. A matching USB stick with tracks from leading Welsh musicians, as well as other useful information about music in Wales, accompanies the directory.
The Directory and USB will serve as a guide for international producers, promoters and curators to develop their knowledge about the world music genre in Wales.
A panel of experts were chosen to select the final twelve musicians that appear in the Directory. The panel comprised of:
Huw Stephens: Radio 1 DJ and Director of Sŵn Festival
Sian James: leading world music practitioner
Leah Zakss: Music Adviser, British Council
Andy Williams: Director of Welsh Music Foundation,
Einion Dafydd: Senior Music Officer for the Arts Council of Wales
Crispin Parry: from British Underground
Eluned Hâf: Director of Wales Arts International
