The Korea Foundation and the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Hanoi are co-hosting the concert entitled “Time & Space in Harmony” in celebration of the ASEAN-KOREA Commemorative Summit to be held on December 11-12, 2014 in Busan, Korea. This joint concert will be presented by Gongmyoung and Binh Minh (Sunrise) Ensemble of music firmly based in tradition but which is nevertheless innovative and experimental rather than being “conventional.” Their performance will show that it is creativity which enables traditional musical groups to survive in today’s rapidly changing digital and global age.
