There’s no question that “Arirang” is not a film for the casual viewer, and despite it having won the Un Certain Regard Award at Cannes, it’s also likely to nonplus art house aficionados and even some fans of Kim’s earlier works. Certainly, much of the film of it may not mean much to audiences unfamiliar with his career, and for his detractors will probably only serve to confirm criticisms of him being pretentious and aggressively obtuse. It is understandable that for many the film will seem self-indulgent, as for long stretches of its 100 minute running time it simply follows Kim as he goes about his daily business and his life in the rundown shack, which is so cold that he has to sleep in a tent when indoors.

Often compared to Diana Krall and Norah Jones, award-winning Korean singer Youn Sun Nah displays her unique qualities on Lento as she blends different cultural and musical sources in a respectful yet unconventional manner. Besides jazz and related styles, she draws on chanson, pop and folk music. In addition to original compositions by her and her band members, there is a cover of a Nine Inch Nails song (Hurt) and Ghost Riders in the Sky, a classic country song made famous by Johnny Cash. And, for the first time, Nah explores European classical music: Alexander Scriabin’s 5 Preludes, Op. 16 was a source of inspiration for the album’s title and it also sets up an intimate, atmospheric and harmonious musical world.

From Gil Evans to Youn Sun Nah through the ONJ where Lars Danielsson, this eclectic musician, "rhythmist" more than a drummer, played with all the cream of international jazz, without to mention many forays into pop, song, world music and his work as a composer of film music. Inventive percussionist, whom his peers nicknamed "the wizard" offers us in this first solo album music of the highest caliber, open and energetic, which has its place at the forefront of the current European jazz. Fed at school in Brazil, the Caribbean, Africa and the East, Xavier Desandre Navarre is a popular musician from the Scandinavian scene, his compositions are many games and tributes to live music and jazz in particular.

With her universal yet individual style Youn Sun Nah gives traditional vocal jazz a new flavour, while unconventionally and effortlessly exploring new exciting spaces. She is one of the most outstanding representatives of vocal jazz that includes the whole spectrum of contemporary music. Female singers who manage to stir a whole genre are seldom found. Diana Krall and Norah Jones are such outstanding talents who gave vocal jazz a whole new colour, and Korean singer Youn Sun Nah has been equally phenomenal. In the last few years she has conquered the music world with her albums “Voyage” (2009) and “Same Girl” (2010) released on ACT.
