Welsh Music Foundation closes months after staging Womex

An organisation which helped to bring the world music industry to Cardiff in 2013 has announced its closure.

The Welsh Music Foundation offered promotion and training for musicians and singers, and was part of the team which attracted the Womex convention to the Welsh capital in October.

It said the end of its government funding had forced it to shut its doors.

BBC Wales arts and media correspondent Huw Thomas reports.
