Korea - Land of the Morning Calm: Sanjo
presented by Peter Duffy (8 Dec 2002)

"The communication between the musicians and the listeners, who themselves become passionate partners, turns the performance into an art form that is unique and rich in content." - Kim Kyong-Soon (pansori scholar). Pansori is an epic story that only exists in Korea and can take up to 8 hours to perform. This is part 2 of a presentation with Chunhyangga (Song of Chunhyang), one of only five pansori still in the performance practice. The highlight of the love story is the birthday party of the village judge.
