A rare opportunity to hear traditional Korean shamanistic music performed in sinawi ensemble by gayageum virtuoso Kim Hae-Sook (Department of Korean Traditional Music, School of Korean Traditional Arts), agaeng master Kim Young-Gil and master percussionist Yoon Ho-Se, and introduced by a hauntingly beautiful folksong prelude by Kang Hyo-Joo of the National Center for Korean Traditional Performing Arts.
