Ancient Tseezh music was described in terms of poetry and rhythm. For the ancient Tseezh, singing was merely a stylized way to recite poetry, and as such more emphasis was placed on literary merit, diction and delivery. For dance they just had rhythmic percussion. Religious ceremonies used dances and incantations instead of music as such.

Classical Tseezh music was Aristoxenean, i.e. it had no fixed tuning system. Melodies were based on the contours of speech.

Plays: basically pansori but with different rhythms and with multiple characters on stage, complete with an Ancient Greek style chorus
