The second of the two online concerts from the New Talent strand brings together two interesting jazz-infused acts:
New Talent III & IV: Gray By Silver + Gonia
Gray By Silver
Expressive pianist and composer Hanbin Lee leads this jazz group in expertly performed, emotional pieces of voice, daegeum (large bamboo flute), percussion, and piano – bringing together classical, jazz, and progressive with Korean and Middle-East rhythms both in ethereal waves and staccato punches.
‘HanBin Lee’s playing has wide range of spectrum and diversity. Totally calm but also suspenseful’
Jazz band Gonia are experts in improvisation, creating the new music style K-jazz, based on traditional Korean rhythms on the janggu (hourglass-shaped, double headed drum) with smooth and progressive guitar and bass licks with sophisticated melodies. The composition of the free rhythms of the janggu and the endless flow of improvisation of bass guitars grants listeners with endless surprises.
