2018 Suseong World Music Festival


On May 11th, the first day of the festival will start with the performance of “Namibian Tales,” a modern and original African harmony and rhythm, followed by Brazilian singer-songwriter Flavia Dontas, the essence of Bossa Nova. “The Tune,” which caused a great repercussion between traditional music enthusiasts through reinterpretation of traditional music and improper experimentation, will open the prelude of the festival.
