Daegu Intangible Cultural Property No.8 Pansori +
||Intangible Cultural Property
Pansori refers to a singer weaving a long story by mixing a spear (sound), anil (word), and body gesture (screw) to the rhythm of the drummer. After the mid-Joseon period, the song was developed based on the unique tunes of the southern part of the country. Depending on the region, it was divided into Dongpyeonje (Northeast of Jeolla-do), Seopyeonje (Northern Jeolla-do), and Jungdongje (Gyeonggi-do and Chungcheong-do).
Currently, only "Chunhyangga, Simcheongga, Sugungga, Heungbooga, and Jeokbyeokga" are handed down as five madang of pansori or five bahtang of pansori, and are designated as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Although Pansori in Daegu does not have a specific name for its creation, many master singers have been active in the Daegu area since ancient times and have unique characteristics. Lee Myung-hee, designated as the holder of pansori entertainment, continues the tradition of Dongchoje Pansori Heungboga, which was taught by Kim So-hee, while Joo Un-sook, a master singer, continues the tradition of Dongchoje Pansori Simcheongga, which was taught by Lee Il-joo.
