Celebrated South born cellist Su-a Lee draws on her 30 years of musical experience in her stunning debut solo album Dialogues.
Continually reaching beyond the classical genre, the top-class chamber musician has worked with exceptional World music artists throughout her career. She is highly sought after for her distinctive sound, expression, and willingness to explore. In Dialogues, Su-a showcases the highlights and inspirations of her non-classical career and brings her own unique voice to the fore.
Dialogues is a series of musical conversations with 15 of her all-time favourite folk musicians from home and abroad, including Natalie Haas, Karine Polwart, Julie Fowlis, Phil Cunningham, Maeve Gilchrist, Donald Shaw, Hamish Napier, Donald Grant, Duncan Chisholm, Jenna Reid, Patsy Reid, James Ross and Carel Kraayenhof. Each piece is an intimate duet that takes their musical relationship to the next level. Each collaborator has carefully chosen a tune or song that is close to home and heart, and one that also celebrates their strong connection with Su-a over the years. Many are original compositions, written especially for the album and dedicated to her, while others are fresh arrangements of traditional tunes.
