About this Performance

In her songs and in her celebrated memoir, Michelle Zauner has written eloquently about heartache, pain, and her identity as a Korean American woman. With her latest album, the Grammy-nominated Jubilee, she’s written about something even more difficult to tackle: joy. Taking a page from the bright lights and flapping rhythms of Björk’s Homogenic, she works in bold colors and big textures, “recalling the optimism of youth and applying it to adulthood,” as she says. Her band makes their Walt Disney Concert Hall debut with a set of massive songs that are grounded in Zauner's early days in the punk underground and girded by what she calls the “constant struggle we have with ourselves to be better people.”

Japanese singer, songwriter, and classical guitarist Ichiko Aoba creates a world of fantasy where the heart warmly beats.
