Dyfan is innately musical. He's a wonderful composer, arranger, orchestrator and musicologist.  The breadth of his musical knowledge and sense of daring are perfectly balanced with great sensitivity and openness.  It is these qualities, alongside his passion and commitment, that make collaborating with him effortless and exciting.
