International jazz outdoor concert in HK features local and foreign musicians

An outdoor concert featuring five local and foreign jazz musicians is set on Sunday, September 11, from 3pm to 7pm at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza, according to the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) of Hong Kong.

Entitled “2016 Hong Kong International Jazz Festival – Outdoor Concert,” there will be free performances by Idiot Fish 3, Terry Yau Quartet, HG FunkTronic, Sonderins, and the duo Veronica Nunes and Ricardo Vogt to be joined by John Abraham.

Idiot Fish 3 is a jazz group from the United States led by drummer/composer Wally Schnalle who has performed in countless festivals and released many albums showcasing his original compositions produced through the latest music and computer technology.

The famous Korean drummer Kim Hong-gie, meanwhile, leads HG FunkTronic who will perform a new Korean jazz style fused with hip-hop and electronic music elements.

Brazilian musicians Veronica Nunes and Ricardo Vogt will play their ukulele and guitar, respectively, alongside local drummer John Abraham.

Two local groups, Sonderins and Terry Yau Quartet, will play a combination of modern jazz and jazz standards as well as renditions of well-known jazz music.

The jazz festival is presented by the LCSD in cooperation with the Hong Kong Jazz Association.

NewsNarratives (formerly Wired Correspondence) aims to become an independent and progressive online magazine that will focus on underreported social issues and human interest stories in the Philippines and elsewhere written in narrative, longform journalism. We intend to extensively cover stories of people and communities whose struggles are left undercovered, unheard, or unaddressed by the governments or other institutions. But as a progressive publication, we focus less on what these institutions failed to do for them, rather focus more on what can still be done. Then again, it’s not all about the failures and struggles. We also want good stories that inspire and give hope. So, we will feature stories of people who won life’s struggles in hopes of learning from them and of ordinary individuals who are contributing extraordinary work whether to their family or community—yes, the many unsung heroes in our society. We aim to help and inspire people through our storytelling, by producing content that targets the heart to feel and provokes the brain to act on it—in a good way. We start all these in our own backyard, the Philippines, with a dream of pursuing elsewhere.
