Clear your schedule for next Saturday folks because the Korean Cultural Center, Los Angeles (KCCLA) is bringing to the Ford Amphitheater its highly anticipated production of Rhythm and Passion of Korea, a fusion of Southern Korean tradition and modernity through music and dance.
The evening will feature Haegum Plus, an ensemble of elite musicians, led by award-winning Haegum virtuoso Kang Eun-il. Known for her innovative music styling to create “new traditional music,” Kang boasts a hefty resume having worked with NHK Orchestra and the Yoshida Brothers with regular performances at The World String Festival in Japan. Though representing the traditional part of the show, audience members can expect to be taken on a musical journey that dares to defy perceptions of “traditional” music. While remaining true to the characteristic sound of the haegum, Kang and her troupe will combine its musical tones with Western orchestral and classical instruments while playing modern composers’ work.
For the second part of the evening, breakdance crew Last for One will grace the stage with their air-defying acrobatic routines. As the winners of the 2003 Japan Battle of Hirapa and 2005 International Battle of the Year in Germany, the crew has been featured in the critically acclaimed documentary Planet B-Boy and has performed in the States and parts of Europe and Asia.
To close the night, Last for One and Haegum Plus will perform together onstage, truly merging traditional and modern Southern Korean tastes together.
Two lucky winners can win a pair of tickets to the show!
