Korean music has a rapidly increasing worldwide audience and this year’s festival brings some well-known names back to London: Jambinai, Park Jiha, Kyungso Park with her new group SB Circle and Black String, plus emerging artists Gonne Choi and Hey String.
An evening at Kings Place, Celebrate Pansori, will sample five traditional Korean operas in one night, bringing this very ancient art form to a modern audience.
Produced and directed by the Korean Cultural Centre UK and Serious, K-Music 2019 presents another impressive line-up of concerts.
