Borderless Contemporary music band, Black String, was founded in 2011 Korea-UK cultural exchange program titled "UK Connection" project. The band consists of Yoon Jeong Heo (Geomun-go), Aram Lee (Daegum & Yanggeum), Jean Oh (Jazz guitar) and Min Wang Hwang (vocal, percussion). The band made its debut at Jarasum Internatonal Jazz Festival (Korea) and London Jazz Festival (UK) in 2012 collaborating with UK artists; Tim Garland (Saxes), John Turville (Piano/Keys), Asaf Sirkis (Drums) and Gwilym Simcock (Piano). Since then the band is expanding their musical horizon by teaming up with prominent Korean artists.

Black string aims to seek a new sound that can internalize a variety of musical expression in traditional music, as well as harmonize with other expression in world music. The new sound will be reinterpreted by artists who embrace traditional music as well as jazz, reflecting composed and improvised creations. It especially attempts to create a unique language through Asian intuition and improvisation as an important aspect of Korean traditional music and musical idiom. The music of Black String based on Korean musical traditions, will offer a fresh, new sound to audiences. And Black String will offer an experience that broadens the appreciation of the world music audience by presenting an “ancient” tradition within a modern setting.
Especially the leader of Black String, Yoon Jeong Heo is interested in expanding the possibilities of Geomun-go and bringing together different genres ranging from Korean traditional music, contemporary music and improvisation as a virtuoso of Geomun-go. Furthermore, she is a founder and a leader of world music project band “Tori Ensemble” which was selected at the 2010 PAMS Showcase and got invited to 2010 WOMEX(opening concert), 2011 WOMAD UK, 2012 WOMAD AU, and 2012 WOMAD NZ. Black String is another attempt after her “Tori Ensemble”.
