2014 is a special year for Sungha. He will be releasing his fourth solo album; and is visiting Singapore for the fourth consecutive year. Fans at the show last year will remember being entranced by Sungha’s carefully chosen set list, which included masterfully arranged K Pop, Classic and Contemporary tunes. This year, fans can expect that and more, as Sungha looks to incorporate works by up and coming artists in his repertoire - come expecting music by Lorde, Passenger and Miley Cyrus in addition to Michael Jackson, Deep Purple and the Eagles.
Akihiro Tanaka is a preeminent fingerstyle guitarist coming from Kyoto, Japan. His guitar arrangements are a combination of smooth chord changes, catchy grooves and prominent bass lines. He first gained prominence in 2007 by winning Japan’s national fingerstyle competition, and then took the International Fingerstyle Guitar Championship in Kansas, USA three years later.
Akihiro and Sungha are very close friends, and have previously performed together on numerous occasions. As a treat for the fans, the duo may perform an unprecedented number of duets, including My Favorite Things from the Sound of Music, Eric Clapton’s Change the World and Akihiro’s very own Etude of the sun. This is definitely something the fans do not want to miss.
Sungha Jung most recently performed in Singapore to a world record-breaking sold-out crowd at the Kallang Theatre. Get your tickets soon to avoid disappointment!
