'Obang' - Shilla Ensemble
Hyelim Kim, Seayool Kim, Seonju Kim, Yong Min Cho

The traditional Korean colour spectrum, also known as Obang-saek refers to the five Korean traditional symbolic colours of white, black, blue, yellow and red. These colours are feature prominently in ‘hanbok’ (traditional Korean dress), paintings, musical instruments at festivals, architecture, flags and traditional icons. For this year’s Korean Music Night, the Shilla Ensemble will present a programme of music and dance from its traditional and contemporary repertoire reflecting the concepts embedded in the significance of these colours. The program will include minyo (Korean folk songs), court music, dance and new compositions inspired by various aspects of Korean culture.
