Gunhild Carling is one of the most celebrated stars of jazz today.  She plays around 20 instruments and her dancing has to be seen to be believed!  She combines these extraordinary virtuoso skills with elements of vaudeville that make her show an unforgettable experience.  In the last few months she has played in Argentina, Central Park New York, Seoul, Las Vegas, Israel, Bangkok and now Châteauneuf-du-Faou!  In the unique atmosphere of “Fest Jazz” it’s going to be an unforgettable show.
