Youn Sun Nah in A Tribute to Women’s Voices.

Following the success of her 2022 album ‘Waking World’, Youn Sun Nah returns to the K-Music Festival with her new work ‘Elles’. To mark the 30th year of her jazz career, Yoon Sun Nah’s 12th album Elles pays tribute to women’s voices, and to some of the singers who have influenced her career, from Nina Simone to Roberta Flack, via Björk and Edith Piaf, across eras and musical borders.

“I first heard Nina Simone’s version of ‘Feeling Good’ when I was in high school,” says Youn Sun Nah. “From the moment I decided to study jazz, I listened to her music all the time. Nina Simone is like a shaman. She’s not just a singer – she is the music.”

Recorded earlier this year in New York for the first time as a keyboard-voice duo with American pianist Jon Cowherd, this new album will be brought to the stage with Bojan Z, one of France’s finest pianists. The performance will feature a series of duets with an intimate feel, showcasing artists who are always in the mood to reveal their innermost selves.
