As part of his 2015 World Tour, Sungha Jung will return to Singapore for his fifth headlining show on 30 May 2015.
Sungha Jung will perform a type of guitar music known among enthusiasts as fingerstyle. In this virtuosic style of music, the guitarist uses the guitar like a piano, and proceeds to perform the melody, bass, accompaniment and percussion all on a single instrument.
About the Artist
Sungha Jung has been hailed by many guitar lovers and musicians as the finest teenage fingerstyle guitarist in the world. Combining spell-binding technique with artistic wizardry, his guitar renditions of contemporary, jazz, broadway and classical tunes have gone viral on YouTube, having been viewed over 400 million times around the globe.
Sungha first picked up a guitar as a 5 year old, after watching his dad play it. He improved quickly by watching and imitating videos of seasoned veterans such as Ulli Boegerhausen, Andy McKee and Kotaro Oshio. The video that launched Sungha on the road to stardom was his rendition of the Pirates of the Carribean theme song, which was watched over 44 million times on YouTube. Since then, Sungha has embarked on worldwide sold-out tours, and performed with the likes of Jason Mraz, 2NE1, Tommy Emmanuel and YouTube Stars Sam Tsui and Kurt Schneider.
2015 is a special year for Sungha. He will be releasing his fifth solo album; and is visiting Singapore for the fifth consecutive year. Fans at the show last year will remember being entranced by Sungha’s carefully chosen set list, which included Let It Go from the Frozen OST, Eric Clapton’s Change The World and the eerily-beautiful rendition of Joe Hisaishi’s Carrying You.
As part of Singapore’s 50th anniversary, Sungha will be celebrating our nation’s jubilee with his own arangements of a few local songs that we have grown to love, from our nation’s most-treasured artists. It will undoubtedly be a memorable occasion!
