Produced by the Korean Cultural Centre UK as part of the Korea/UK 2017-18 season, in collaboration with SERIOUS, this year’s festival focuses on collaborations, letting artists explore their practices in new unexplored ways.
Korean band Black String will play alongside Northumbrian small pipes player Kathryn Tickell on 15th September at the Union Chapel in Islington; daegeum flute player Hyelim Kim will perform in duet with London singer/violinist Alice Zawadzki at the Vortex in Dalston on 2nd October; and Rich Mix in Shoreditch will lend its stage to geomungo player Woojae Park backed by Japanese drummer Shogo Yoshii and British-Indian composer and sarod player Soumik Datta on 9th October.
And that is not all. A total of nine concerts will take place in venues across the capital between 15th September and 25th October, and there is little chance one will not find something of their taste. There is jazz, traditional Korean music, electronic and even ska and reggae (check out Kingston Rudieska).
