Overall aims and purpose

Course content

Maes cymharol ddiweddar yw Ethnogerddoreg (neu’r astudiaeth o gerddoriaeth mewn cyd-destun cymdeithasol/diwylliannol) sydd wedi sicrhau derbyniad a sylw rhyngwladol yn ystod y 120 mlynedd diwethaf. O ganlyniad i hyn, tyfodd y diddordeb mewn diwylliannau cerddorol byd-eang a daeth traddodiadau cyfandiroedd fel yr Affrig, America Ladin, Dwyrain Ewrob a.y.b. yn seiniau cyfarwydd i ni yma yn y Gorllewin. Bellach, gwelir dylanwad y traddodiadau hyn ym myd cerddoriaeth gyfoes, ‘boblogaidd’ a gwerinol ein gwlad. Y mae’r cwrs hwn yn gyflwyniad i’r ddisgyblaeth arbennig hon ac i wahanol ddiwylliannau cerddorol y byd heddiw. Rhoddir sylw hefyd i offerynnau cerdd a’u swyddogaeth yn nhraddodiadau rhai gwledydd dethol yn ystod y flwyddyn.
