Burnheart is an experimental electronic modal jazz project, rooted in traditional jazz infused with techno grooves and modal harmony. One of the jazz re:freshed picks for “Sounds of 2020”, the band is led by up and coming jazz violinist Johanna Burnheart and will perform music from their newly released album.
Originally from Berlin, Johanna draws inspiration from early modal jazz pioneers such as Eberhard Weber and Zbigniew Seifert as well as the current German techno scene.
After the record release with Ropeadope Records on October 30th 2020, this will be a reunion of the band for a special London Jazz Festival performance.
Burnheart is formed of fellow Guildhall graduates:
violin & voice - Johanna Burnheart
keys - David Swan
double bass - Jonny Wickham
drums - Boz Martin-Jones
