The concert featured Korea's finest hip-hop dancers and Korean traditional music. Twenty four performers came to Baku for the non-verbal narrative of Richard Bach's "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" through modern hip-hop dancing.

The audience greatly enjoyed the performance of the world-renewed hip-hop groups "Animation Crew", "Gamblers Crew" and famous traditional synthesis music group of women "Season of Soul". During the concert, the performers performed the traditional and contemporary Korean music.
