Joe Boyd Talks Pansori

Part of EFG London Jazz Festival

Before Ahn Sook-Sun’s performance, record producer and writer Joe Boyd talks about why pansori is such an enthralling artform.

In his words, ‘Pansori is as rich and earthy as flamenco or blues, with lyrics that are as poetic as either of those forms.’

Boyd has worked with artists including Pink Floyd, Nick Drake, Sandy Denny, Richard Thompson, REM, John Martyn and Olivia Chaney. His enthusiasm for Bulgarian singing is well known, but now he reveals his love for pansori.

Part of K-Music Festival 2018.
