Online mini-concert dedicated to the anniversary of the National Foundation Day of Korea
On the occasion of the 2021 National Foundation Day of Korea and as part of the 2021 edition of the Korea Weeks, the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, together with Ensemble SU and Mrs. Marina Voicu, kindly invites all music lovers to enjoy the mini-concert titled “Korea – Romania Unison in Music” – a Korean music and dance performance – which will be streamed online in Premiere on Friday, October 15th, 7PM, on the official YouTube account of the Embassy.
During this mini-concert, the fusion music performed by Ensemble SU will come to life through the repertoire that includes both selected pieces of traditional Korean songs – “Pungnyu Sallong”, “Younghon Yeonga”, and “Arirang” – along with traditional dance – “Salpuri Dance”- , and a special musical moment: a rendition with Korean instruments of “The Lonely Shepherd,” a representative song performed by a famous Romanian pan flute artist.
This mini-concert is performed by a Korean music band, named Ensemble SU that strives to bring Korean culture closer to listeners all over the world through the universal language of music. The five members of the band mix the sounds of traditional Korean instruments (gayageum, haegeum) with those of Western ones (cello, piano, and drum). It will be a wonderful experience to listen to this harmonious fusion of sounds!
Furthermore, with the occasion of this mini-concert, the audience will also meet the unique MC, Mrs. Marina Voicu, a Romanian who has been living in Korea for over seven years.
The recording of the mini-concert includes Romanian subtitles and anyone who is interested in seeing the two countries coming together as one through this music experience can watch the mini-concert for free via the online platform, until December 31st, 2021.
