A Night of Dynamic Post-Rock Korean Music
with Black String
Fri, Feb 28th, 7:30 PM
Music Performance/MCC Theater
Black String is a South Korean quartet led by geomungo (traditional Korean zither) player Yoon Jeong Heo, who incorporates traditional Asian music, jazz, blues and rock, and electronica. It’s a powerful mix, bursting with all kinds of timbre possibilities, a context in which improvisation and traditional forms truly merge. As the band performs, amplified bursts of sound of the geomungo and Korean bamboo flutes, the fierce quake of Korean traditional percussion, and unpredictable melody of jazz guitar will grasp all of your senses. $5 for UCSB students and youth under 12; $15 for general admission.
