Anweledig, Sombreros yn y Glaw

The Blaenau Ffestiniog group’s first masterpiece.

Being able to identify a group is always a good test and one which Anweledig certainly pass despite producing a diverse offering on their CD ‘Sombreros yn y Glaw’. The nine member band from Blaenau Ffestiniog area come up with an interesting and diverse collection of songs.

The opening track, Merch Coffi sounds like a jazzed up version of the stereo MCs. Yet cleverly, the style of the song changes as it goes along. This technique is again adopted on Eisteddfod, the track beginning as a sultry laid back ballad before developing into a Caribbean calypso style. Some comedy is bought into the track as the lyrics are rather jauntily shouted over the background music. Meanwhile touches of Indian music blend into the song’s dub mix version. Touches of humour are also to be found on Mr Hufen Ia and Madarchol. The latter, more bluesy than most of the songs, is a catchy tune which has the capacity to grow on you. This won’t be to everyone’s taste but certainly gives Anweledig a unique and recognisable style.

Campwaith cyntaf y criw o fro Stiniog!

Mae Anweledig wedi bod ymysg rhai o fandiau amlycaf Cymru ers nifer o flynyddoedd. Daethant i sylw nifer fawr ohonom yn Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Castell-nedd, wrth iddynt gymysgu gallu offerynnol gyda charisma perfformwyr naturiol. Bryd hynny roedd eu cerddoriaeth dan ddylanwad ffync ac acid jazz. Profodd y gymysgedd hon yn anhygoel o boblogaidd gyda chynulleidfaoedd Cymru am ei bod yn ddawnsiadwy, egniol a melodig. Ers y dyddiau cynnar, mae eu dylanwadau a’u niferoedd wedi ehangu. Erbyn hyn dyw hi ddim yn anghyffredin i glywed elfennau reggae, dub, a ska yn y gymysgfa gerddorol nac i weld llu o offerynwyr ychwanegol chwaith yn eu cyngherddau.

O’r gwreiddiau egniol cynnar, mae swn aeddfetach wedi datblygu. Wrth wrando ar albwm cyntaf y band, Sombreros yn y Glaw, mae’r aeddfedrwydd i’w glywed ymhob elfen; y cynhyrchu, y caneuon a’r perfformiadau. Mae dau symudiad clir i’r albwm, y cyntaf yn hamddenol neu’n araf, a’r ail yn fwy caled ac egniol.
