    Jo Hye-ryeong Haegeum solo concert <gayageum: Seo Eun-young, Taak: Seo Su-bok>

    Jo Won-haeng's "Jinhon" was written in memory of the late Cardinal Stephen Kim Sou-hwan.

    The last step of the world over that hill.
    You step on it and wave your hand with a bright smile.

    To shake off the fetish of life's obsession and greed.
    Welcome to the new world.

    I miss all your traces today.

    Janggu dance is a dance in which a janggu is held obliquely around the shoulder and accompanied by various rhythms.

    It is an exciting dance in which a woman moves her feet lightly with a unique gait called a magpie's step, with a well-rounded waist around the women in line with folk songs such as Shingosan Taryeong, Cheongchunga, and Gyeongbokgung Taryeong.

    In 1991, Cho Hung-dong selected music as his first work, studied each dance move, and choreographed it to express the excitement and style of our woman in his collection.

    It is a song characterized by the delicate touch of a woman and a simple and concise melody.

    The nongik of the performer Ji Sung-ja, combined with the changes of various Janggu rhythms, conveys the deep taste of the rhythm that is formed and solved through the performance.

    Recommended music

    Musical instruments such as gayageum, geomungo, haegeum, ajaeng, piri, and daegeum are played freely and spontaneously within a certain rhythm.

    Free and spontaneous, but never distracting or dissonant, so they sometimes use the expressions "harmony in discord" and "order in chaos" over Sinawi.

    It is intended to share the resonances of resonance rather than the inner echo and sympathy of the listeners with the full logic of traditional yin and yang.

    ☆Yeomyangchun is an instrumental variation from accompaniment for traditional Gagok genre. Originally Gagok is accompanied by geomungo, gayageum, sepiri, daegeum, haegeum and janggu, but it changes when instrumented; geomungo and gayageum is eliminated, hyangpiri substitutes sepiri, and ajaeng and jwago are added.

    Yeomyangchun is famous for its daegeum solo. It was named "Geosang-ak" because it was mainly played in the court banquets. It's rhythm and melody are structurally free, giving it a cool and clear feeling.
