The K-Music Festival returns to London in September with a wonderful programme of music and performance from Korea, offering a glimpse of the stunning range of artistic work that comes from that country – improvisational, ancient, theatrical and modern.

Highly acclaimed jazz singer, Youn Sun Nah will perform a rare London concert, saxophonist Andy Sheppard will premiere a collaboration with gayageum-player Kyungso Park and the mesmerizing Jambinai come back to the festival with a new album.    

Jeong Ga Ak Hoe combine ancient and modern with three free performances at the British Museum and National Gugak Centre perform a concert of traditional, ritualistic music at Kings Place.   

Rich Mix presents Idiotape and The Patients for a slamming night of punk-inflected dance music and, on another night, Danpyunsun and the Sailors and Asian Chairshot.

The festival closes at The Place with a thrilling and powerful dance performance by Modern Table, ‘Darkness Poomba’, for their first ever appearance in the UK.
