NST & The Soul Sauce, an eight-piece roots reggae band, joins forces with a multi-award winning Korean Pansori vocal Kim Yulhee to create one of the most unique cross-genre mashup tunes that has never been heard before. The most unexpected yet quavering, powerful spiritual sound of reggae and pansori will explode, dance and melt in your ear and heart.
Led by Noh Seonteck, the former bassist for Windy City, a first-generation reggae band in Korea that has performed at Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, CMW, and SXSW, has created the Korea’s “all-star” reggae band NST & The Soul Sauce in 2015. With two feet firmly planted in roots reggae, their unique sound has elements of jazz, African beat, funk, soul, psychedelic, and nyabinghi blended with classic Korean pop. In 2017, the band introduced their newest project featuring a powerhouse Korean Pansori vocalist Kim Yulhee. Along with the influence of Korean traditional sound and philosophy, they’ve created what they have dubbed: “Korean reggae."
NST & The Soul Sauce Meets Kim Yulhee released their first full album “Version” (Eastern Standard Sounds/Sony Music) in March 2019.
