Seoul-based Jeong Ga Ak Hoe perform ancient and newly composed works for traditional instruments, finding a balance between the old and the new. They explore the shamanistic inspiration in Korean music and draw on forms such as Pansori, giving it a contemporary relevance. They have toured widely in the US and Europe but this will be their first ever visit to the UK and this concert will draw on the folk songs and ritualistic music of North Korea “from an era when the Korean peninsula was whole” and harks back to the Korean travelling music groups of the 1940s. This programme is presented in partnership with the British Museum as part of the Chuseok Festival to celebrate the Korean Thanksgiving Day in the UK.
