"If you want to learn pansori, the first step is to make your voice very hoarse, and then try to get a clear, beautiful sound from that hoarse voice." - Hwang Byungki. Pansori is an epic narrative form that enjoyed great popularity in the 18th and 19th centuries Pansori is performed by a soloist armed with a fan and a handkerchief for dramatic purposes, accompanied by a single drum and inspired by occasional cheers from the audience. This is part 1 of a presentation with the Pansori Chunhyangga (Song of Chunhyang), a story of corruption, imprisonment and love.
