Sanjo shares the stage with American jazz and blues traditions, as well as klezmer music.
Sanjo is a form of Korean music with its origin in the music of the Korean indigenous shaman culture and pansori (epic story-telling sung drama) tradition. An improvised multi-movement solo genre, the soloist interacts with the rhythmic accompaniment of the janggu (double-headed drum).
This show features some of the most renowned Korean performers together with outstanding Grammy award-winning jazz artists: Lee Tae-Baek (ajaeng); Yi Jiyoung (gayageum); Kim Sung-Ah(haegeum); Gamin (piri); Sita Chay (violin); Frank London (trumpet) and Ned Rothenberg (saxophone).
