12th Burum -Burum launch their 4th album called 'Eneidiau' (Spirits) at the Flute and Tankard! Burum combine both the Welsh folk tradition and jazz - the band's music fuses a deep respect for the original folk melodies themselves with the flexibility and dynamics of jazz improvisation - beautiful, melancholic melodies are performed alongside fiery solos and deep grooves. Burum will perform the music from the album 'Eneidiau' in its entirety along with new arrangements that were worked up in the studio in September 2021. Burum is a jazz sextet with a difference -The brothers Tomos (trumpet) and Daniel Williams (tenor sax) lead many of Wales' most creative and in-demand musicians: young folk virtuoso Patrick Rimes on bag-pipes and flute (yes! bag-pipes...it really works!), Matheus Prado on bass, Dave Jones on piano and Mark O'Connor on drums. Burum have performed across Wales and internationally (India, France, USA).Unique Welsh jazz at its very best https://www.burum.org
