Bex Burch and Peter Zummo Live on Sunday 27th January 2019
Bex Burch of forward-thinking UK trio Vula Viel, alongside acclaimed trombonist Peter Zummo. Join us for an evening of truly unique collaboration.
Trio Vula Viel was formed in 2013 by Bex Burch after studying at Guildhall and training as a classical percussionist, she embarked on a life-changing three year period living, farming and studying with xylophone master Thomas Segura in Upper West Ghana. The band’s name means ‘Good is good’ in the Dagaare language. After being mentored in the deep traditions around the Gyil, a large African xylophone made of sacred lliga wood, Burch began the journey to bring the instrument into her own music. The acclaimed debut Vula Viel album in 2015, ‘Good is Good’, was the first realisation of her vision and ‘Do Not Be Afraid’ is the first set of Burch originals, written on traditional Dagaare forms.
Peter Zummo is a creative artist and supporting character in music and related media. His compositions and collaborations embrace both the contemporary-classical and vernacular genres, and are informed by four decades of realizing the work of other composers, poets, bandleaders, choreographers, directors, and filmmakers. His work with the contemporary trombone is genre non-conforming, and still finds a place in any genre.
