The last Saturday in Korea we went to Korea House in Seoul to see some traditional Korean music and dance and after that we found a live music jazz bar and some cocktails.
This is my new dress from Lucky Chouette! It is silk and has the most amazing cut, just perfect.
I’m also wearing pearls, earrings from the Afghanistan exhibition in Trondheim, my favorite bag from Kate Spade and new Korean made shoes.
My handsome man.
How my nail polish matches his shirt and the pattern on my dress. Cool, eh?
And here starts the show. We saw a show that sort of sums up many different traditional arts, and every day there is a different combination of artists. I guess they have other things to do as well. This is the traditional drum dance, where each dancer has five (as here) or three drums. This is actually used in a music video of a k-pop band (2:40).
This is a woman playing a traditional harp/sitar like instrument.
A dance with long sleeves done sort of in slow motion.
Traditional, super fast, choreographied drumming.
Dancing with fans.
And this dancing and drumming combination where they had these ribbons on their hats that they danced with at the same time. Very impressive and cool.
This guy was drumming and moving so that the thing on his hat beat like a heart.
The whole crew in traditional Korean costumes.
Then we were off to the jazz club.
We actually went to two jazz gigs during our two weeks in Korea. I wish there were more jazz places in Oslo, then I would go every weekend.
