Jang Sa-ik singing career 10th anniversary concert

장사익: 하늘 가는 길 / Jang Sa-ik: 'Road to Heaven'The singer Jang Sa-ik (장사익) has his career 10th anniversary concert on November 17 in the Sejong Cultural Center, tells Hankyoreh. I had always thought that his career had been longer, but it was only in 1994 that he debuted. From the debute concert program: "I want to shout out my voice. Today I take off the clothes of my voice in front of all the good people. I'll shout with excitement and without desire. I'm the luckiest bastard in the world."

I found out Jang Sa-ik when I wanted to buy something traditional Korean singing, and the cover of his first album (see the linked picture) Hanûl kanûn kil attracted me so much. Jang is a true sorikkun, who sings and shouts out the joys and sorrows of the world in a sincere and inspired manner.

For the interested, some of Jang Sa-ik's music can be found here. (Those residing in Korea are of course adviced to go to a cd store.)
