Pansori is a traditional Korean genre of music that originated in the 17th century and remains a living art form today. It is one of Korea’s traditional music genres and expresses four key emotions such as hope, anger, love, and happiness in people’s lives.

Pansori is a theatrical art form in which a singer tells a story with a drummer, through singing, dancing, and even humorous jokes. UNESCO has proclaimed the Pansori tradition a Masterpiece of the Oral Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2003.

This concert will be centered around the theme of a mother’s love and sacrifice, expressed by different parts of Pansori stories. The unique vocalization of Korean Pansori will be a stage that moves and inspires audiences regardless of age, nationality, race, or beliefs.
