Tori Ensemble is a world music ensemble featuring Korean traditional artists and American free jazz artists – transcending musical borders through a mingling of jazz, new music, and Korean influences. “Arirang” is a song of love and longing, an ancient Korean folk music taking on various different musical interpretations in each of Korea’s diverse local regions. Tonight’s performance will show the most basic, instinctive beauty of Arirang, with the unique melodies and rhythms of versions from Gangwon (East), Sangju (South), Wonsan (North), and Seoul (West) fusing seamlessly with the modern sound of the Tori Project. Each of the seven performers move freely between solo and ensemble performances, eliminating the boundaries imposed between instruments and in music.
