Traditional Korean Music

Music of the world

Double CD (sold at the price of one) dedicated to the great richness of the music of Korea: native tradition and musical forms come from China (besides, some repertories disappeared today in China persist in Korea). Classical forms have been favored but they do not obscure the prodigious richness of popular music remained alive in the countryside of the "Country of the Morning Calm". The instrumentation is very varied - gongs, bells, flutes, horns, drums, fiddles, zithers - the voices, masculine or feminine, are always astonishing. The repertoire ranges from court banquet music to shamanic songs, from orchestral suites to improvised music, from "P'ansori", a kind of opera for a person to pieces of Confucian influence. This box, which fills a discographic void, was made in collaboration with the Korean Cultural Center of Paris
