There is a Korean woman who is playing to connect Asian people with music. TeRra Han (34). She has studied in Japan and China and now She is continuing to work in New York. I heard a story from Han who came to Japan. (Gomi Yoji

At the end of last month, Han held a concert at the Suginami Public Hall in Suginami-ku, Tokyo

At the event of celebrating the 50th anniversary of normalization of diplomatic relations between Korea and Japan, more than one hundred and fifty Korean music fans enjoyed the delicate work of the Korean kayageum sanjo

When she was five years old, she learned traditional arts such as kayageum, pansori, and dance through her mother ‘s recommendation, and won the awards related to domestic and abroad successively and established her status as a young kayagum player

However, in Korea, interest in traditional music is blurred and it is not easy to live as a musician.

“I want to know how I keep traditional music in other countries in Asia.” I visited Japan first in 2010. I actually studied shamisen and koto as a student at the Tokyo University of the Arts and I was born in Kyoto and felt friendly with Japan

She also studied at the prestigious music conservatory of China, Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing and learned about the ancient music and culture. During her stay in China, she is also studying North Korean kayageum

“There is something in common among Asian music,” said Han, who starts off slowly and gradually speeds up

The goal is to share the values of Asian people and to feel the sense of understanding and to become a role of the bridge. Currently, she is holding a concert in New York with a variety of musicians, and is active in Japan and Korea. In April next year, she will hold a concert in Japan.

アジアの人でつなぐ 韓の伽耶琴奏者 韓泰さんが

でアジアの人をつなごうと演奏をけている韓人女性がいる。韓泰(ハンテラ)さん(34)だ。日本と中でもび、今はニュクをベスに活動をけている。日した韓さんに話を聞いた。 (五味洋治)

 

 韓さんは先月下旬、東京都杉並の杉並公堂で、韓器である伽耶(かや)琴の演奏を開いた。

 日韓交正常化五十年を記念して開かれたイベントで、韓のファンら百五十人以上が、細な弦さばきをしんだ。

 

 韓さんは五の時、母親のめで伽耶琴、パンソリ、舞踊などの統芸術をびはじめ、国内外の連する賞を次に受賞し、若手伽耶琴奏者としての地位を築いた。

 しかし、韓では統音への心が薄れ、演奏家として生活するのは簡ではない。

 「アジアの他のでは、統音をどう守っているのか知りたい」と、二年にまず日。東京芸術大科の特別究生となり、際に三味線、琴もんだ。祖母が京都生まれで、日本に親しみを感じていたこともあった。

 

 さらに中の名門、中央音楽学院に留し、古箏をんだ。中国滞在中には、北朝鮮式の伽耶琴も勉している。

 「アジアの音には共通点がある」と韓さんは話す。最初はゆっくりと始まり、徐にスピドを上げていく点だ。

 

 「音だけみてもアジアの人たちはを共有できるし、理解しあえる」と感じ、その橋渡し役となるのが目標だという。現在は、ニュクで多彩な音家と共同で演奏を開く一方、日本や韓を行きしている。年四月には、日本で演奏を開く予定だ。
