Black String: K-Music Festival 2019
ACT artists Black String burst on to the London scene eight years ago at the Jazz Festival and now the masters of traditional Korean music and jazz are back to make their mark on EFG London Jazz Festival 2019.
Their storming international debut Mask Dance (ACT) earned them a 2018 Songlines Music Award, their ceremony performance being a true representation of ‘borderless contemporary Korean music’. Their 2nd album will be released by ACT in the latter half of this year.
They present their band as ‘the unfathomable and endless possibilities of both the East and the West’ and have performed with prominent Korean musicians as well as many major UK artists, such as Kathryn Tickell, Tim Garland and Gwilym Simcock.
