Sun-Mi Hong Quintet (NLD/KOR) | Artist in Residence

22-11-2020 16:30 - 17:45

Amsterdam based drummer Sun-Mi Hong (KOR) is the National Artist in Residence at Amersfoort Jazz 2020. She is a rising star in Dutch Jazz, already featured at the Amersfoort Jazz festival 2019 as an international laureate. Inspired by drummers such as Brian Blade, she moved to The Netherlands to study at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. She is now a central figure in the Amsterdam jazz scene, conquering the hearts of her colleagues and public, according to the critics “one step away from an international breakthrough”. Her quintet consists of some of the finest exponents of the Next Generation: Alistair Payne (GBR/NLD, trumpet), Nicoló Ricci (ITA/NLD, sax), Young-Woo Lee (KOR/NLD, piano) and Alessandro Fongaro (ITA/NLD, double-bass). The works come from their latest (new) album ‘A Self-Strewn Portrait’ released in March 2020.
