Yabuno Ettun Project


Saturday, March 21st at 7:30pm

A unique musical experience is in store as we welcome back the Yabuno Ettun Project. Ehud Ettun, bassist, and Haruka Yabuno, pianist, describe their music as “simple, but unique, and fun.” The two young masters see their music as the next level of conversation. Their improvisatory music is on the line between classical and jazz with a mixture of Baroque esthetics and contemporary jazz.

They say, “We began our collaboration four years ago. Since then, we've been developing our own musical language. This language continues to grow, taking us – as well as our audiences – above and beyond any cultural, linguistic or geographic differences and barriers.” Eliseo Cardona, editor of the blog Blue Monk Moods says, “Their music is based on the intrepid attitude that anything goes as long as risk is shooing away any fear.”

A native of Israel, Ehud Ettun is a recipient of the America Israel Cultural Foundation scholarship and “Tzfunot Tarbut” grant. Ettun studied at the Jerusalem Music Academy with Michael Klinghoffer and at the New England Conservatory with Dave Holland and Donald Palma. “Quickly establishing himself as an up-and-coming bassist on the Jazz and world music scene” (Jazz Earshot), Ettun has performed at venues ranging from New York's Blue Note to Washington Kennedy Center and Boston's Symphony Hall. He has performed with many artists including George Garzone, Danilo Perez, Fred Hersh, Frank London and others.

Haruka Yabuno began her musical career at the piano when she was three and gave her first improvisation. Her foundations in classical piano continued to strengthen as she accumulated numerous distinctions in national level competitions that eventually led her to be accepted into the prestigious Kumitachi College of Music in Tokyo, Japan. While at Kumitachi College, Yabuno was exposed to the music of Jazz and studied with legendary pianists such as Makoto Ozone, Yosuke Yamashita and Masahiro Sayama. Yabuno was awarded the highest honor by the Jazz department, The Yosuke Yamashita Award. In 2010, Yabuno received a scholarship to Berklee School of Music in Boston. Currently a resident of New York City, Yabuno has performed at many prestigious venues including Jazz at the Kitano, Shapeshifter Lab, Caffe Vivaldi, Somethin' Jazz and many more.
