There is, you won't be surprised to hear, more to Korean music than 'Gangnam Style'. Here to prove it is K-Music 13, a capital-wide celebration of the diverse sounds of the East Asian states that takes in everything from Korean folk opera to underground rock at venues from Cadogan Hall to the Scala. Kicking things off tonight is the National Orchestra of Korea, making their London debut with ancient instruments that have been modified to more contemporary purposes, and blending Korean classical music with western influences.
