A lazy post with a link to a performance of a number entitled “Seoul in panic” by the gugak fusion band Sorea. Modern music performed on traditional instruments, with dancing both traditional and modern. It could be taken straight from a Korea, Sparkling promotional video. It works rather well:
The b-boys are from Extreme Crew.
Less satisfying as a musical experience are the massed strings of the Sookmyung Gayageum Orchestra playing some Pachelbel, but Last 4 One makes up for it.
A version of this was performed at the Korean Cultural Centre in London not so long ago.
Back to Sorea, and a classy tourism video:
