Captivating violinist & recording artist, MAUREEN CHOI, returns to Terraza 7 by way of Madrid, Spain with the music of her all-new album, “Theia,” in a special North American tour!
Now residing in Spain, Korean-American violinist Maureen Choi is sparking a revolution in the improvised music scene in Spain.
Inspired by the sounds and rhythms of the Spanish Diaspora, classical music and jazz, “THEIA” digs deep into different traditions of music in order to refine a personal language.
That search for her voice, breaking genre pre-conceptions, became “Ida y Vuelta” (2015), the 1st album with her current line-up.
After 6 years playing together, more than 500 concerts all over Spain, 3 USA tours, and great reviews on specialized media like Downbeat or All About Jazz, the band has reached a level of maturity, interconnectedness, finesse and musicality that is hard to explain. Choi´s unique ability to take the audience on a deeply emotional journey through her violin is unparalleled.
The new album “THEIA” is the musical consequence of the band’s evolution, as individuals and as a collective.
Maureen Choi Quartet is currently on tour presenting the new album and is scheduled to appear in festivals in Spain, USA, and Asia (Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taichung, Seoul, Jarasum, Tokyo, Guangzhou) this year.
