Wendy Woo CD Release Party – The Immigrant
April 5, 2019
As the daughter of immigrant bohemian parents who were founding faculty members at Naropa University, growing up in the family home was a true eclectic social center, with visitors like Ginsberg, Kesey, and Mailor.
Wendy Woo has been exposed to the unexpected in life. As the daughter of immigrant bohemian parents who were founding faculty members at Naropa University, growing up in the family home was a true eclectic social center. Visitors such as Allen Ginsberg, Ken Kesey and Norman Mailor would be regulars in the living room.
As Woo’s prowess grew she developed a technique she calls “Slaptap.” She transforms her body and guitar as one percussion instrument. She hits and slaps at various point of the acoustic guitar creating a performance art piece. The fluid movement between her hands and body keep the viewer focused throughout the song.
Wendy Woo hasn’t put out a solo album since Angels Laughing in 2005. It was a fan favorite then and continues to be her most requested album. Now, 14 years later, is the follow-up solo album, The Immigrant. Pure Woo. Sweet, introspective, rueful. Songs about family, change, growing older. This is the memory album, the coffeehouse album, the wine with old friends album, the father passing album. This is her life and the lives of those around her.
