Soojin Suh Coloris Trio is led by Korean creative music artist and drummer Soojin Suh. The idea behind this trio is to have a group that works dynamically, blending their “melodic breath“ which is a principal concept from Korean traditional music. Additionally, Soojin emphasizes narrative forms with detailed arrangements and improvisation that is derived from the pulse of the melody. In the groups album “Colorist”, leader Soojin’s compositions serve as a vehicle for many striking moments and newfound musical textures that come from a uniquely Korean aesthetic, in which each player’s role has been expanded beyond traditional piano trio form and composition.
