The Korean National Gugak Centre is one of the great arts companies of Korea. This performance concentrates on Sanjo, a style of instrumental music accompanied by a drum and sometimes by dancers, starting slowly and gathering speed, with a structure that allows for virtuosic improvisation.

The evening shows off some of the great traditional instruments of Korean traditional music such as the geomungo (large zither), daegeum (transverse flute) and haegeum (Korean fiddle). This is the last date on the group's European tour, and provides a fitting conclusion to the K-Music Festival.
