A Pansori artist for the modern generation with dynamic energy and power

With its origins in 17th century Korea, traditional Pansori features one voice singing narrative poetry enhanced. 

Kwon Songhee brings this UNESCO-recognised art form into modern times with Songhee Pansori LAB, featuring new songs with a contemporary slant and additional instruments, complementing the singer-storyteller with electronic music, ambient sounds and trip-hop.

A highlight of the HKAF programme, the World Music Weekend is a sonic journey across continents. This year’s selection brings klezmer music from eastern Europe, Korea’s singer-storyteller pansori tradition, and Buryat-Mongol music from the vast and distant Lake Baikal region of Siberia. Experience great artistry and traditions, developed over centuries and now brought into the 21st century.

World Music Weekend also includes
Anna Maria Jopek and Kroke (Mar 17-18, 8:00pm)
Namgar (Mar 18, 5:00pm)
