Black String

November 18, 2019 @ 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm


The masters of traditional Korean music and jazz create a musical language through intuition and idiom.

Their storming international debut Mask Dance earned them a 2018 Songlines Music Award, their performance being a true representation of ‘borderless contemporary Korean music’. Their second album is due for release this year.

They present their band as ‘the unfathomable and endless possibilities of both the East and the West’ and have performed with prominent Korean musicians as well as many major UK artists, such as Kathryn Tickell, Tim Garland and Gwilym Simcock.

Black String is Yoon Jeong Heo on geomungo, (zither-like stringed instrument with bridges and frets), Aram Lee on daegeum (large bamboo transverse flute) and yanggeum (hammered dulcimer-like metal stringed instrument), Jean Oh on guitar and electronics and Min Wang Hwang on vocals and percussion.
