Comfort Girl is a song-cycle inspired by true stories of Asian “comfort women” abducted into sexual slavery during WWII. It is not only a groundbreaking fusion of East-West musical traditions, but has also sparked public dialogue on a formerly taboo subject that still resonates globally for women today. Based on survivor testimony, the jazz-opera/song-cycle gives voice to the 400,000+ women and survivors who were silenced for 50 years.
Comfort Girl “is a stunning work that shines light on a dark chapter of history but also feels inspirational for contemporary listeners.” –DownBeat
“One of New York’s most socially relevant and ambitious jazz talents” –NY Music Daily
