━ About Artist

In a modern society where popular music is dominating, we came together in 2017 as a group of musicians who share concerns about pursuing the path of a musician with traditional musical instruments.

Norigae (괴불노리개) (06:05) (Ajaeng Performance) - 

1st piece of the night is called 괴불노리개. 괴불노리개 is a charm at the end of the children's pocket string. It was given to children and was usually made with red, yellow and blue to ward off evil spirits. This piece tells a story of a great Korean tragedy which was remade in the movie 귀향 about comfort women. 


Sunset (05:25) (Gayageum Performance) - 

2nd piece is called 석양, sunset. piece was written with the image of the sun setting behind the mountains; signaling the end of the day. not for the sunset is so beautiful, thinking of a single rose withstanding treacherous winds to bloom. It must be so beautiful as we withstood the tribulations of our day.

3rd piece In traditional Korean music, there's Pansori(판소리). It mainly has 5 types of story: Story of 춘향, of 흥부, of 수궁, of 심청 and of 적벽.
