Join me in Korean traditional house "The place Seoul" (곳) where I will introduce you to Korean folk music called pansori—a genre of musical storytelling performed by a singer and a drummer. Pansori is an amazing vocal style you may have never experienced before, which has been recognized by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. During the concert, the singer will sing a long story through songs, and the audience will give the singer some response, such as "good" and "great." It is so much fun when a performer and the audience interact continuously during the concert. Of course, between the performances, I will give you an introduction to Korean's representative sentiments, Korean folk songs and Pansori. And you'll also experience to sing a small part of Korean folk song with me:) Enjoy my concert and have fun.
I'm a professional pansori vocalist. I've sung the folk songs and Korean dramatic songs of pansori as my professional vocation for 25 years. Now I regularly hold pansori performances as well as teach people at National Theater of Korea and some universities. I also regularly give lectures on radio broadcasts. Plus, I'm a winner of a national competition of Korean folksongs. But, what I really want to do is to share my songs and stories privately in a traditional place. I would love to share my music with you.
Well-made Korean tea. (that are unique and made with the very special care.)
