We are pleased to announce that the Southbank Centre concerts in K-Music 2021 have just gone on sale and that all tickets for the Festival are now available.  In addition, Dal:um will perform a second UK date – at Norwich Arts Centre on 8 November.


K-Music concerts at the Southbank Centre include Kyungso Park and Soona Park, two gayageum masters (12-stringed zither), from south and north Korea, performing for the first time with fiddler and singer from Wales, Angharad Jenkins, for an intriguing encounter between eastern and western strings (17 October) and Dal:um, who, on gayageum and geomungo (silk-stringed zither), move into soundscapes that are modern and mellifluous, focusing on the silence and space between the notes (6 November). Their highly-acclaimed new album ‘Similar & Different’, was released on Glitterbeat’s label imprint tak:til earlier this year.  The final Southbank Centre concert features experimental drummer Soojin Suh leading her new trio Coloris and Nigerian-born, London-based saxophonist Camilla George as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival (17 November).


K-Music concerts at the Purcell Room are part of the Southbank Centre’s Purcell Sessions – a series allowing artists to present new material and collaborations to an intimate audience in this prestigious London venue.


The K-Music Festival opens at Kings Place on 6 October with internationally-known 9-piece band ADG7 and continues until 17 November: http://www.serious.org.uk/K-Music
