by Burum

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Original arrangements and interpretations of traditional Welsh folk songs augmented by the dynamics and flexibility of jazz improvisation.

    Trefniannau gwreiddiol o alawon traddodiadol Cymraeg.

    Llef, is a Welsh hymn, composed in 1890, but the other material, as on Burum's previous releases are re-imaginings of Welsh folk songs. Recorded on a weekend in January 2016 in Pembrokeshire, Burum continue their journey of creating new music with old melodies.

    Burum have been playing together for almost 10 years and the empathy and friendships that have developed over this time shines through in the music. Burum are a band, with a distinctive band sound - not a collection of individuals simply playing together.

    Price includes postage and packing.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Llef via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
