The National Orchestra of Korea
Thursday 14 October, 7pm AEDT
Sink into the charm of Korean music with the National Orchestra of Korea’s Sam-Sam-O-Rak 2. A multi collaboration music project with artists from different genres, this performance promises to enchant audiences with its charm and stripped-back style.
Thursday 21 October, 7pm AEDT
The alternative pop band LEENALCHI debuted in 2019 and have quickly gained a massive following, due in part to their unique way of storytelling through solos, choruses, rap and dance. Drawing inspiration from the 80’s new wave, the seven-piece band fuses traditional Korean pansori music with synth-pop vibes.
Travel of Korea’s Sound is presented by the Korean Culture Centre with the support of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of the Republic of Korea (MSCT) and Korean Foundation for International Cultural Exchange (KOFICE).
The two events are free to view and will be livestreamed on the centre’s Facebook and YouTube Channel.
