Club Inégales

There’s not much Korean-ness about this event, but it’s going to be so good that it’s worth bringing to your attention given the amazing work that Peter Wiegold does with Club Inégales – about which I’ve enthused on several occasions over the past couple of years. Kim Hyelim (pictured) is one of 22 performers taking […]

The final gig of Club Inégales’ current season was predictably unpredictable. You know the format in advance, but you never know what the outcome will be.

When we previewed the double bill at Wilton’s Music Hall featuring Purcell with Korean, Middle Eastern and western instruments, improvisation and more, we had an inkling that the evening might be something special. And we were darn right. This was music making and entertainment that is rare to find anywhere. First, the Purcell. King Arthur / the […]

Next Wednesday’s late-night (9pm) concert at Wilton’s Music Hall, featuring the extraordinary Korean musician Gamin, should be something special. (Book tickets here).

I’m a fan of Peter Wiegold’s eclectic approach to music-making, and whether or not there’s any Koreanness involved at his regular venue, Club Inégales (where Kim Hyelim on daegeum is a frequent member of the house band), the music is always wondrous.

Now in its eighth year, here are the LKL Awards 2013. The year has been both good and bad from LKL’s perspective. Good because there seem to have been more events, more books, more films and more music than ever before as Korean culture gets more and more public attention. And bad because our day […]

I’m sure most of you have been in the scenario of trying to get a drink in a busy bar, with an overstretched barman (or maid) not having a clue who’s next in the unspoken queue. He looks around, and whoever shouts loudest gets served. You wonder if you will ever get your thirst quenched. […]
