ARTIST REVIEWS
Caniadau
Caniadau

"An impressive piece of work with some excellent playing from all six members of what is effectively a Welsh “supergroup”. Jazz/folk fusions don't always work but on the whole this succeeds brilliantly"

4 out of 5


Llef
Llef

"The band's approach sounds as fresh and inventive as ever. “Llef” is a worthy addition to the Burum catalogue."
