ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
‘Blue and White’ is Vong (a. k. a Vongku) Pak’s blending of traditional Korean and Western art forms. Vong believes traditional forms do not suddenly appear out of nowhere, rather they build up over time through a process of gathering a diverse range of influences to achieve its figure. The concept of ‘Blue and White’ comes from the ancient Asian philosophy of Yin and Yang , as well as the school of Five Elements. ‘Blue’ symbolizes Eastern culture whereas ‘White’ symbolizes Western. Since 2006, Vong’s Blue and White projects have been realized through the performances of 2 Sky Trio (2007), Book of changes (BAC Grant Awarded work, 2010), New Pansori(2011) and Wind From Asia (2012).

‘Electric Shaman’ was initially conceived as a concert called Buk and Blues performed at the University of Washington in November 2011 for The Korean Society’s Seattle outreach program. Electric Shaman is a fusion of traditional Korean rhythm, Korean ritual style vocal and electric guitar instrumental, inspired by South and North Korean folk songs. Improvisation is a significant element of Electric Shaman. In ancient Korea, the shaman unified the community as healer and entertainer. Today, Electric Shaman still upholds the beautiful mission of the ancient shaman.
