"Without music, life would be a mistake." - Friedrich Nietzsche

Youn Sun Nah

In our time and age, a jazz singer from Korea may still seem like an exotic concept. But anyone who knows how much effort Asian countries invest in education and promotion also knows about the growing circle of jazz fans in the region. So with notable exceptions it’s astounding that there aren’t more artists from Korea or Japan whose names are on everyone’s lips. However, Youn Sun Nah could change all that, and as the first Korean artist exclusively under contract with ACT, anyone listening to her debut album Voyage (ACT 9019-2) will understand why. Born in 1969 in Seoul, Youn Sun Nah comes from a family of musicians - her father is a conductor and her mother a classical singer. She made her debut in the field of music at the age of 23 but it was not until she turned 26 that she decided to make music her profession.
