Yusan has been created in 2016 after an unexpected artistic residency in Chamonix.
This is a genuine friendship story that results in a common willing to make music together. An obvious alliance for these artists who have each a very strong musical signature, but share influences as a collective legacy, and a complicity they put at the service of creation.
The name Yusan has been given by a band’s friend. It is the korean word for « legacy » and perfectly sums up the way they see their own music.
From these « strong individual identities and a common legacy », Yusan makes its jazz travel from Caribbean musics to African rhythms, through songs, gospels sounds and urban influences.
This mix is the sextet’s signature, where everyone naturally finds his own place.
