Ancient Korean Music Today – Jeong Ga Ak Hoe presented by Live Sounds
Wednesday, March 16, 2016 at 7PM
Elebash Recital Hall at The Graduate Center/CUNY
(365 Fifth Ave. at 34th St., New York, NY 10016)
A NY debut!
The Seoul-based Jeong Ga Ak Hoe performs unique interpretations of Korean traditional music alongside newly composed works for traditional instruments.
The band’s eclectic repertoire has deep roots in the ancient Korean concept of Johwa (meaning “harmony” or “balance”). Each performance is an expression of the transformative power existing in both music and nature.
Bringing narrative, recitation, dance and video into their performance the group creates a ritualistic, genre-defying space where past, present and future coexist simultaneously; preserving and transforming the musical heritage of their ancestors.
