Lyrical melodies performed on traditional Korean folk instruments are amplified with guitar, electronics, and improvisation into a fierce quake of sound when this four-piece band hits the stage.
Founded in 2011, Black String has performed at festivals and venues around the world, including the Jarasum International Jazz Festival in South Korea, the London Jazz Festival, The Kennedy Center, Flushing Town Hall, and Rockwood Music Hall.
Join them for “an engaging exploration of what can be achieved by bringing ancient and modern into creative fusion” (Jazzwise).
