BLACK JASMINE: Three of us are classical music trained, so I think our music won’t be completely pop. Instead, we are going to make new type of pop music with drama. Because we are doing A cappella music and between these contrast phrases of the song, we created character and conversation. Three voices are three different characters. Also, we made a original musical show called The story of Black Jasmine.
