The Trio Sonic Calligraphy Trio

Peggy Chew, vocals
Adrian Frey, piano
Willy Kotoun, percussion

Over the years, Peggy Chew, vocals and Adrian Frey, piano have been cultivating their “two minds meet as one“ over a wide range of repertorie of songs from “The Great American Songbook“, American folk pop tunes, Chinese folksongs to original compositions. In 2001 the duo created Sonic Calligraphy which was inspired by the Chinese music that Peggy heard growing up as the Chinese-American daughter of Chinese immigrants. Jazz, Latin, Afro-Cuban and European Classical styles and improvisation fuse with traditional Chinese melodies to create a captivating cross cultural blend of a new sound. Since 2005, master percussionist, Willy Kotoun is a new member of the group.
