This summer, Korean bamboo flute player Han Chung Eun returns to New York City with 3 concerts with 3 different colors and flavors.
Well known for his eclectic repertoire from traditional Court Music to Chamber Ensembles to Jazz and K-pop, Chung Eun performed and collaborated over the years with renounced artist such as Bobby McFerrin, British Guitarist legend Martin Taylor, Swedish jazz guitarist Ulf Wakenius, Vocalist Inga Marie, and Composer and Pianist Ryo Kunihiko.
Chung Eun’s NY Summer concert series kicks off at Korea Society on July 31st featuring Gayakeumist Rami Seo. The unlikely duo first met 20 years ago when Rami was a young prodigy at the prestigious National Music School. Chung Eun’s soulful Bamboo sound will meet Rami’s splendid gayakeum performance in modern composition Sound of Bamboo Wind and Spring at the Guard House.
Concert at Rockwood Music Hall will feature music from Chung Eun’s second album ‘Forest’ supported by 2 acoustic guitars, bass and percussion, a combination that will maximize the beauty and soulful sound of bamboo flute.
Performance at Poets Den Theater in West Harlem will bring a grand closure to Chung Eun’s musical journey in an intimate setting, where the musicians and audience connect through the sound and the beat of the rhythm that touches basic human emotion.
Chung Eun’s recent performance includes the historic inauguration of Park Geun-Hye, the first woman to be elected as President in South Korea, 2013 NYC Winter Jazz Festival with Sunny Kim, Opening Ceremony at 2013 Busan International Film Festival, and Closing Ceremony at 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.
