An improv artist endowed with a fabulous and unique vocal technique, an iconoclast explorer, a minimalist and a colorist, the South Korean singer Youn Sun Nah is becoming a fondamental figure in the present world of vocal jazz. In her new album “She Moves On” coming out this spring, Youn Sun Nah turns to American music and surrounds herself with artists also as uniquely talented as she. With reprises by Joni Mitchell, Jimi Hendrix, Paul Simon and Lou Reed, and with such a varied repertoire borrowing influences from folk rock rhythms, Youn Sun Nah carefully selects her sounds to magnify her voice and create thousands of strange nuances.

As for Hono Winterstein, he assumed the role of Django’s brother and offered the rights to this biopic. A unique concert to bring the spirit of Django to life with the prestigious guitarists who participated in the film.

A well-known Soul-Funk figure, Larry Graham, founder of the renowned Sly And The Family Stone and later, Graham Central Station, has revolutionized the genre with his famed “slap bass” playing technique of which he is credited as the inventor, and his two groups responsible for the cool funk and groove that marked the 1970s. The ‘80s had forgot Graham but thanks to Prince, a fan of the splendid Graham Central Station, who created a royal path using the percussion, drums and bass in his album, the “Kid of Minneapolis” carried Larry Graham to a legendary status as they toured together for 10 years. With his flipped bass solos and his formidable deep-funk, Big Larry has influenced many a number of musicians and reignited the burning flame of the ‘70s.
