K-Music 2016: Youn Sun Nah + Ulf Wakenius

Electrifying jazz from two globetrotting headliners

Showcasing the forefront of Korean music, K-Music 2016 presents you with two of the country's favourites in this double dose of killer music. Beginning with one of Korea’s greatest voices, jazz singer Youn Sun Nah initially made a name for herself in France. 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. She is accompanied by Swedish guitarist Ulf Wakenius, who has been celebrated for his work with Oscar Peterson and Ray Brown. Pushing a unique and refreshing approach to jazz, the combination of Youn Sun Nah and Ulf Wakens is a beautifully clean and simple performance that works perfectly in the glorious Union Chapel. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted. Valid ID required.
