An Island turtle look at,

drawing Korean on the world

Around Gapyeong downtown, there is a town named Jara-mok (Turtle’s neck). Two hills, one big and one small, are similar to a turtle’s head and body. This turtle’s neck area is called Jara-mok. Where this turtle figure is looking is Jarasum (Turtle Island). Hosted on a once-abandoned island, Jarasum Jazz Festival become the most successful festival in Asia by featuring 1200 artists from 58 countries. The word ‘international’ has been removed from the name of the Jarasum Jazz Festival. But, Jarasum Jazz is Already a remarkable Korean music festival that is recognized worldwide.

However, the festival has been only jazz for 19 years. Jazz includes various subcategories such as swings, fusion, bossa nova, bebop, and world music. The fact that Jarasum Jazz introduces different types of music under name jazz is the major role of the festival.
