About The Event
Join The Camaraderie for a fun Friday night out with new local lady friends as we gather for an evening that will be delicious for all of the senses!
We're headed to spend that night at the gorgeous Chelsea Table & Stage, to enjoy a live performance by female-led Black String.
Hosted in partnership by The World Music Institute and Korean Cultural Center of New York, we'll be treated to New sounds from the ancient instruments of Korea. Black String is a quartet named after the Korean zither, geomungo, with percussion, bamboo flutes, guitar and electronica also in a mix that swings comfortably between east and west, Korean folk and jazz.
We'll arrive before showtime to be seated and settle in for delectable food and drinks in a stunning space, before kicking back for the show.
“TOWERING, hypnotic, psychedelic Korean post-rock majesty” is how the New York Music Daily describes this edgy and improvisational foursome led by Yoon Jeong Heo, an educator, Artistic Director of Seoul’s Bukchon Changwoo Theater, and one of few female masters of the geomungo (a traditional Korean zither, the inspiration for the band’s name). The ensemble, made up of band members Yoon Jeong Heo (geomungo), Jean Oh (electric guitar), Aram Lee (daegeum, sogeum, yanggeum), and Min Wang Hwang (janggu, vocal), mixes centuries-old instruments with electric guitar and beats, creating a unique and timeless percussive sound, at once modern and ancient, that is all their own.
Black String creates a unique musical language drawing on Korean traditional music, jazz and free improvisation, presenting extraordinary, enigmatic music that wells up from silence and grasps the senses.
