The Korean wave washes up in Hollywood when top exemplars of South Korean culture arrive at the Ford. World Champion B-boy group Last for One, featured in the film Planet B-Boy, displays its winning brand of break dance with the U.S. premiere of their newest piece Seoul Beat. Haegum Plus, a fusion music ensemble, uses Korean traditional instruments in original ways to create new sounds. Led by virtuoso instrumentalist Kang Eun-il, the group seamlessly weaves modern composition and world styles into Korean music.
Rhythm & Passion of Korea is part of our Live @ the Ford series. The performance and special behind-the-scenes footage will air on KCET on August 15.
