Free pre-performance lecture at 6 p.m. by Dr. Ju-Yong Ha (University of Hartford) ​​​​​

Seoul Music: Korean Sanjo Meets New York Jazz features some of the most renowned Korean performers together with outstanding Grammy award-winning jazz artists: Lee Tae-Baek (ajaeng); Yi Jiyoung (gayageum); Kim Sung-Ah (haegeum); Kim Tae Young (janggo); Gamin (piri); Sita Chay (violin); Frank London (trumpet) and Ned Rothenberg (saxophone).

Sanjo is a form of Korean music with its origin in the music of the Korean indigenous shaman culture and pansori (epic story-telling sung drama) tradition. An improvised multi-movement solo genre, the soloist interacts with the rhythmic accompaniment of the janggo (double-headed drum). In this performance, sanjo shares the stage with American jazz and blues traditions, as well as klezmer music. 

This program is made possible, in part, by support from Arts Council Korea, The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the World Music Center Foundation.
