Youn Sun Nah

Part of EFG London Jazz Festival

Hear Youn Sun Nah, one of Korea's great voices, in a rare London concert.

Born and raised in Seoul, Youn Sun Nah first made her name in France, where Le Monde praised her ‘magnificent voice and passionate originality.’

There’s a clear influence of chanson in her performance – whether she’s singing Johnny Cash, Nine Inch Nails, a jazz standard, or one of her own terrific songs, she’s always telling a story.

For this show, she is joined by pianist Frank Woeste, bassist Brad Christopher Jones, drummer Ben Perowsky and multi-instrumentalist Tomek Miernowski.

Opening the evening will be Hyelim Kim and Alice Zawadzki.

Korean Hyelim Kim, a superb Daegum (bamboo flute) player, has played with Nils Frahm and Lubomyr Melnyk, literally breathing new life into Korean traditional music. Violinist and vocalist Alice Zawadzki has such ability to compose, perform and improvise across genres, such as jazz and classical, bringing her dramatic voice, warm humour and creative enthusiasm, leading Jamie Cullum to describe her as 'beautiful and uncategorisable - a real force to be reckoned with'

The success of their first collaboration during K-Music Festival 2017 brings them back this year to open this special concert.

Produced by the EFG London Jazz Festival in association with the K-Music Festival.
