Double Bill Ⅲ Sori to Korea from Iran coming along the silk road
Masnavi, Bukcheong Sajanoreum (Bukcheong Lion Mask Dance)



A double bill has been prepared to provide a special stage where the audience can compare and appreciate the 'tungso' of Bukcheong Sajanoreum, a unique Korean wind instrument, and the neey, Iran's wind instrument.
'Neey' travelled to Middle Asia and China along the Silk Road by way of oases along the way. The Persian neey is still used, and, interestingly, it is possible to find some connection between the Persian neey and the Korean tungso in that Persia is closely related to Korea.
The ‘tungso’ of the Bukcheong Lion Mask Dance proves that our culture is deeply connected to western Asia, and that through various processes it has gotten its own unique style. How have the two instruments of the same origin changed? Through the double bill stage, the audience can see the instrument that has been changed. crossing countless of borders and cultural encounters and the traces of agony that still exist.

The Masnavi introduces Radif, the center of Iran's traditional music. Radiff was developed by improvising. It was won by a soloist, not an ensemble. Radiff historically influenced Arab art music. The Wind instrument ‘Ney' holds an important position in Radif. Ney is the only instrument used in classical music ensembles. You can feel the charms of a mysterious radif.



Bukcheong Sajanoreum(Bukcheong Lion Mask Dance)


Bukcheong Sajanoreum was designated as the 16th important intangible property in 1967, and it was a folk style that was done in Bukcheong-gun, Hamgyeongnam Province at the beginning of the year. On January 15th, when the first full moon of the year rose, they wore lion masks and enjoyed themselves while wishing to expel the evil and praying for the well-being of the villages and their people. They believed that the lion has the power to expel evil.
