Black string, Korean contemporary music without borders crossover band
━ About Artist
━ Introduction of Performance
This concert Karma It contains all the experiences of Black String members who have traveled the world together for 9 years.
Karma fuses the typical melody lines of classical Korean music and the sound of traditional instruments with current styles and methods. The opening track “Sureña” features a blues-based groove underlaying the ethereal theme, with different instruments in improvised solos reminiscent of jazz. There are powerful moments, for example Min Wang Hwang’s traditional Korean shamanic singing on “Exhale-Puri”, rising to a shout – accompanied by the band playing swelling rock rhythms. “Blue Shade”delves into Far Eastern prog rock territory.
For Black String, Karma represents a modern, global approach to music with no borders, as well as strong and deep roots.
