Rum - Rum 1972-1978 (Belgium 2005) @320



Rum was founded by Paul Rans (vocals, guitar, lute, zither), Wiet Van de Leest (violin, tenor guitar, banjo and vocals) and Dirk Lambrechts (guitar).

After a year or two, Paul and Wiet sued the group for two before a trio again with Mr Van Dirk (vocals, oboe, guitar, mandolin), who performed in concerts by the end of the year 1975. During these years, have given many concerts - especially in Belgium (both in French than in Dutch), but also in France, Switzerland, Germany, Great Britain and Ireland - and recorded several albums in succession to his formula "fashion folk Flamengo. Rum sang and played a repertoire focused on traditional music Flamengo - including, for example, various parts of the repertoire musette, "a piece of Renaissance music, a piece of Italian origin, etc.. - Arranged in a contemporary and innovative at the same time. Featuring music, rum showed a bit of humor. For a time, Wiet Van de Leest also played the harmonium in concert, then presented Paul Rans Wiet saying he had taken his father grinder to be!

Around 1977 or 1978, Rum reformed without Paul Rans, but with Juan Masondo (guitar, flute and vocals) and Vera Coomans (vocals). Later, Wiet Van de Leest and Vera Coomans Rum left to found the group Madou. Since 1979, Dirk and Juan reformed a new rum that has not happened

Then the group recorded two 33 rpm "Gelukkig ma non troppo" and "Tropical Flandria. The latest, released in 1982, is considered the first album of mestizo folk: traditional music is really diverse influences morning (Balkan music, musette, tango , etc.). Rum continued to give concerts in this formation until 1986, when the group disbanded.

We talk often, even today, the "Rum legendary group" that could be compared (at least in Belgium), in terms of popularity and its contribution to the movement of "popular" in the famous Bothy Band "Irish.

In 2005, the three founding members of the Rum gathered for a tour with the singers of Lai and some other projects. But Mr Van Dirk is, unfortunately, died May 23, 2007. His friends then gave concerts in his honor, the rooms were crowded again proved the popularity of Dirk and Rum.

Great ! Born in Flanders (Leuven) but living since 50 years in Wallonia, I'm fond of Flemish and Dutch folk music. I saw Rum live one or two times in the 70's in Brussels and bought some of their LP's.
I'm very happy to find this fantastic band with much humor & auto-derision on this blog.

Another great post, CrimsonKing!.

You may also want to post some music from these guys, or link to them as they have a free album and some free songs.

Well-produced, lively and good Dutch folk-music.

They're funny too, but that will be lost on English ears. ;)

Geachte CrimsonKing: mijn vinyl exemplaar van Rum 1 heeft het begeven. Tref op uw site deze prachtige post aan, maar de rapidshare link is dood. Is het mogelijk deze te reactiveren of te vervangen door een mediafire link?
