Youn Sun Nah & Ulf Wakenius : summer 2018

mercredi 6 décembre 2017

Korean singer Youn Sun Nah, a genuine improviser and vocal virtuoso, now one of the most famous figures of the international jazz scene. Between a minimalist aesthetic, and a search for purity and depth, she shows a subtle yet powerful voice.

The legendary Swedish jazz guitarist Ulf Wakenius, also known as Oscar Peterson’s last guitarist. A musician able to create intimate moods as well as making his guitar sound like an orchestra.

They toured together as a duet for many years, developping « a nearly telepathic complicity on stage » (Libération) and turning their tandem into a real artistic gem.

This unique musical chemistry allows them to touch and to delight audiences throughout the world (Montreux, Montreal, Marciac, Monterey…) beyond the musical lines.

The duet will be back in Europe next summer between June 28th and July 12th !
