Jang Sa-ik and Sojiro in concert

In the midst of all the bad blood between Korea and Japan and at worst unacceptable expressions of hate, there are luckily those who believe that (South) Korea and Japan are better to be in some kind of relations. The reason why I pay attention to the concert for the 40th anniversary of the Korean-Japanese diplomatic relations is that the Korean performer is none other than Jang Sa-ik. The Japanese co-performer with Jang is the ocarina player Sojiro, previously unknown to me, but apparently a musician of renown.

The concert is held on July 9 under the auspices of Posco in the Posco Center, and the free tickets are available only by online application between June 20 and July 1; the lucky winners are announced on July 4. For more info see the Posco concert pages.

Download and listen for example Tchillekkot (mp3) (wild rose?) by Jang Sa-ik; also more songs available at the Korean traditional music file page.

I'm a big Jang Sa-ik fan myself. Definitely a man with his head screwed on the right way.

Well, I don't know either of them but glad to see some good news on the K-J front like this...
