“An engaging exploration of what can be achieved by bringing ancient and modern into creative fusion.” – Jazzwise
Experience new sounds from the ancient instruments of Korea! World music performers Black String create a unique musical language drawing on Korean traditional music, jazz, and free improvisation. The Geomungo, a long board zethyr, provides a fierce quake of Korean traditional percussion which, together with the unpredictable melody of jazz guitar, grasps your senses. Black String was founded in 2011 as part of a government sponsored Korea-UK cultural exchange program titled the “UK Connection”. Today, they perform on international stages including South Korea, Norway, and London.
