AllMusic Review by

A typical performance of a p'ansori can last over eight hours, so this single disc is just a sampling of the art little known outside Korea. While the unusual vocal gymnastics and highly percussive instrumentation may not be appealing to all Western ears, this is an important document of a timeless art. While the p'ansori is best experienced in person, this is the next best thing.
