Biography of Burum

Burum is a jazz group from Wales, that plays modern interpretations of Welsh folk songs.

Burum (meaning 'yeast' in Welsh) have just released their second CD 'Caniadau' (Songs) in August 2012.

Fronted by the Williams brothers Tomos (trumpet) and Daniel (tenor sax) it's the addition of the Welsh horn pipes and wooden flute that gives Burum such an unique sound.

Burum’s sound is the result of a jazz aesthetic combined with a deep respect for the traditional melodies of Wales.

Burum will undergo a tour of Wales in October 2012 collaborating with the eminent Breton flute player Jean-Michel Veillon.

Burum played at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington DC, USA for two weeks in 2009.

In 2008 they toured Wales, accompanied by the legendary triple harpist Llio Rhydderch.

In 2007 Burum's inaugural CD 'Alawon (The Songs of Welsh Folk)' was released and was received warmly by both the jazz and folk 'fraternities'.

At the CD launch gig in the Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea, in March 2007 Burum were joined by the eminent Berlin-based guitarist Jean-Paul Bourelly for a one-off collaboration, exploring the similarities between Welsh traditional music and the African-American tradition and music.

All members of Burum are active on the South Wales jazz scene.

Tomos Williams also plays with internationally renowned Welsh folk band Fernhill, and has released a duo CD with the triple harpist Llio Rhydderch entitled 'Carn Ingli' (2011) and the Wales Jazz Composers Orchestra.

Dave Jones can be found on this site with his own group - Dave Jones Trio, and Quartet, and has recently released his new CD 'Resonance' (2012) which also features Tomos on trumpet on a couple of tracks.

Mark O Connor is one of the most in-demand drummers in Wales and plays with the Paula Gardiner Trio as well as numerous other groups.

Ceri Rhys Matthews is highly regarded as an innovator and excavator of Welsh traditional music, and is a founder member of Fernhill, one of Wales' premiere bands.
