Cwmaman (Welsh: Aman Valley), (The River Aman being the main river flowing through the village.) Cwmaman is a former pit village near Aberdare, South Wales. It is the place from which the band the Stereophonics originates. For postal reasons it comes under Aberdare.

There is an array of parallel roads in the east part of the village, inc. Burns Street and Spencer Street (along with the other streets collectively known as 'Poet's Corner'), are amongst the steepest in Britain. Also home to the war poet, Alun Lewis, and a plaque in what is now Llanwonno Road marks the house where he once lived.

Cwmaman is also home to Cwmaman Public Hall & Institute a community owned enterprise which consists of a Concert Room, Theatre / Cinema and Fitness Suite.
