    Soojin Suh, experimental drummer

    One of Korea’s foremost experimental drummers, Soojin Suh teams up with saxophonist Camilla George for a trailblazing collaboration

    Soojin Suh’s Coloris Trio works dynamically, blending their ‘melodic breath’, which is a central concept from Korean traditional music.

    The emphasis is on narrative forms with detailed arrangements and improvisation that grows from the pulse of the melody. The result is an array of striking moments and newfound musical textures.

    Soojin Suh has released four records (The Moon in Your Hand, Strange Liberation,Colorist and Embrace), along with the new album, Roots To Branches, in April of this year.

    She is also a member of celebrated group and K-Music 2018 performers Near East Quartet (NEQ), whose eponymous album came out on ECM in the same year.

    Following her K-Music 2020 collaboration with Kit Downes, this year Soojin Suh joins London-based saxophone player, composer and improviser Camilla George for a truly unforgettable evening of sounds from across the globe.

    MOBO-nominated Nigerian-born saxophonist Camilla George fuses African and Western sounds to achieve a beautiful blend of Afrofuturism, hip-hop and jazz.

    A star of Jazz Jamaica, George has gone on to produce two albums of critical acclaim in Isang and The People Could Fly.

    George’s music is warm yet authoritative, relaxed yet imaginative.
