Black Strings Jazz Festival

If you saw The Jac on tour earlier this month you’ll want to know about their latest project Seoul Jazz. This unique collaboration with South Korea’s fresh and fiery Black String will have its world premiere at the Wellington Jazz Festival on 10 June.

The culmination of a year-long collaboration, this powerful night of in-the-moment magic melds Black String’s electrifying and explosive play on Korean musical traditions with the cinematic sound of critically-acclaimed New Zealand talents The Jac.

“Triumphant” (London Jazz News) in their own right, four-piece Black String are making waves on the world music scene, while “spine tingling” (New Zealand Musician) eight-piece The Jac are a freight train of pure musical energy, featuring members of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, The Troubles and the Richter City Rebels.

Be there as they forge a new Korean-Kiwi jazz genre.
