Since the group's founding in 2000, Jeong Ga Ak Hoe has toured widely throughout Korea, Europe and the United States, presenting its unique performances of both Korean traditional music and newly composed works for Korean traditional instruments. Jeong Ga Ak Hoe's eclectic and diverse repertoire has deep roots in the ancient Korean concept of johwa, meaning "harmony" or "balance" each performance is an expression of the transformative power that exists in music and nature.Jeong Ga Ak Hoe's holistic approach has led them to explore the potential of new - and at times - unexpected artistic collaborations, resulting in a distinctive genre of emotionally compelling performance art, utilizing the aesthetics of Korean traditional music as a catalyst to create a visionary, multi-dimensional theater. More than providing mere "incidental" scores, Jeong Ga Ak Hoe draws upon the ancient traditions of Korean musical art, adding narrative, recitation, dance and video to create a ritualistic, genre-defying space where past, present and future coexist simultaneously, both preserving and transforming the musical   heritage of their ancestors.Moreover, noticing similar characteristics between pansori(a Korean genre of musical storytelling) and flamenco, the group had been frequently visiting Spain over the past two years as a means of learning how to fuse these Korean and Spanish musical traditions. The result has been a series of collaborations on musical theater performances with members of the local community, an experiment that presents the essence of multiculturalism in a way that transcends time and culture.
