Sue-Yeon Park and Sounds of Korea
You can hear the shamanistic roots of traditional Korean music in the otherworldly music of dancer-director Sue-Yeon Park's Sounds of Korea, which features the great pansori vocalist Jung Hee Oh. Ensemble Sinawi plays a semi-improvised, shamanically sourced music, augmented by acrobatics, that is at times oddly reminiscent of light jazz. And the youthful New York Korean Traditional Marching Band will blow your mind with its frenetic daechwita ("great blowing and hitting") prowess.
