An interview with Youn Sun Nah

Over at his London Korean Links website, Philip Gowman, who reviewed Dan Berglund’s Tonbruket for us, has been interviewing Korean vocalist Youn Sun Nah. Her short supporting set at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on Monday was very well received, notably by Mike Hobart of the Financial Times.

-She has lived in Paris since 1995 and has recently been awarded the Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the French government

-She is about to record the second album of a three album contract with ACT Records, with Swedish guitarist Ulf Wakenius.

-As a teenager in Seoul in the 1980’s she was out in the streets as a student, demonstrating
