Vancouver Chinese Music Ensemble
SE:UM is a fusion of jazz and Korean traditional virtuosos who united through the pulsating beats of ancient folk tunes and shamanistic rhythms.
Led by Joon Lee, this quintet is a powerhouse ensemble that will be joining Jasmine Jazz in Vancouver May 2024.
Joining forces with saxophonist Hachul Song, trumpeter Jongsang Park, bassist Jaeha Lee, and traditional percussionist Minhyeong Lee, this eclectic quintet is known for their boundary-breaking music. Through years of collaboration, they've harmonized their styles, dismantling barriers between genres.
Allen Zhou is an exciting new addition to the Vancouver Chinese Music Ensemble, bringing a fresh sound to their traditional and contemporary Chinese music performances.
He has recently collaborated with renowned dizi player Yong Sun, appearing on his latest recordings (2023). With his talent and dedication to his craft, Allen impresses audiences with his dynamic cello performances.
Heart-forward and three-time Juno nominated Ginalina creates a world of indie folk music and beautiful children's books that celebrate family, nature, community, culture, and the connections we share between them. Her songs and stories are respectful and real, warm and winsome, fun and folky, emotive and energizing. Together, and in English, Mandarin, and French, with loved ones, strangers, and friends, we can share wild and wonderful moments of singing, dancing, and a sort of kindness that this world needs more than ever.
