Korea - Land of the Morning Calm: Sanjo
presented by Peter Duffy (29 Dec 2002)

The Sanjo is a technically brilliant solo instrumental form, which originated in the folk music tradition of the South Korean region at the end of the 19th century. It is my sincere hope that Korea will one day incorporate the banjo into its music culture, opening the possibility of a banjo sanjo. Until then we will be listening to Sanjo pieces on traditional Korean instruments and this presentation will include Sanjo performances on Komungo, Piri, Haegum and Kayagum. Performers are Kim Won-Son, Park Chong-Sil and Kim Myeong-Shin.
