The Archive collects music which has a Welsh connection; whether it be a Welsh group, artist or material produced in Wales and beyond. The collection encompasses a wide variety of different musical styles, from traditional folk to the emo/nu-metal bands.
With the advent of downloading, Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites, the focus on physical item ownership is now in contention with web streamed access.
New genres of Welsh music makes the Archive’s collection very interesting and contemporary. The scope for collecting music is due to the constant working with artist, agents, managements and individual collectors who inform the Archive of those who have a Welsh connection.
