A true pioneer of Korean wind instruments, gamin is one of the most celebrated piri (small double reed instrument), taepyeongso (Korean traditional oboe) and saengwhang (ancient wind-blow instrument) performers in Korea today. A member of Seoul’s Contemporary Gugak Orchestra for 10 years, she trained in jeongak, the classical court music, and also studied the techniques of sinawi, the shaman ritual music.
