Hyelim Kim & Alice Zawadzki
11 Gillett Square
The K-Music festival has been proud to commission some major collaborations, and this one is really special. Hyelim Kim, a superb taegum (bamboo flute) player, has played with Nils Frahm and Lubomyr Melnyk, literally breathing new life into Korean traditional music, and she has reached out to singer Alice Zawadzki to join her in this partnership.
Jamie Cullum called Alice 'beautiful and uncategorisable – a real force to be reckoned with', and her dramatic voice, warm humour and creative enthusiasm have left critics comparing her to Bjork and Tori Amos. Together, they chose guitarist Rob Luft and bassist Misha Mullov-Abbado to create a real band of titans for this one special performance.
