Chris Hale and Minyoung Woo

Bass guitarist and 2012 Freedman Jazz Fellow Christopher Hale and virtuoso percussionist Minyoung Woo have been collaborating since 2012. The rhythmic language they’ve developed draws on ancient Korean shamanic drumming, original composition and improvisation. Joined by the highest calibre of improvising musicians in Australia, this concert presents the debut of a new suite of music that is mysterious, complex and beautiful.
