Wandering Melodic Road
(The Moon and Wall)

The Tune

Traditional Korean percussion
and vocal band

With the phenomenon of K-pop rising to heights higher than before, the world’s eyes and ears are set on the birthplace of the Hallyu Wave. Yet, the styles of music within Korea are multifaceted, and there exists special groups like The Tune who tread on the blurry line between modern and traditional. Having traveled across the world showcasing their unique sound to a diverse set of audiences, The Tune takes TAIWANfest down a “Wandering Melodic Road” (The Moon and Wall) in an interactive virtual concert that calls upon stories that are so rich in Korea’s traditional folklore. The Tune not only provides an enchanting performance for listeners new to contemporary Korean music, but also leads us in an interactive workshop introducing traditional instruments that are themselves living stories. Where can this vibrant musical path take us? The Tune might just show us the way.

This program is supported by the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism, Republic of Korea; the Arts Council of Korea; the Korean Arts Management Service; and Center Stage Korea.
