Steeped in tradition whilst eagerly looking to the future, Korea boasts a rich and diverse culture that produces some of the world’s most compelling music. By drawing on the ancient past for influence whilst being unafraid to experiment with cutting edge technology, the country continues to attract international attention and acclaim.

K-Music 2017 is a yearly showcase offering you the chance to sample such incredible performers as inspired innovators Black String, daring daegeum composer and performer Hyelim Kim, geomungo master Woojae Park plus psychedelic pansori-rock from AUX.

Brought to you by the Korean Cultural Institute in association with leading London based music promoters Serious, the annual festival showcases some of the very best musicians from a wide range of styles and genres.
