Korean Music and Beyond: A Concert by gamin

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. Her expansive musical knowledge enables her to draw upon her classical training while specializing in contemporary music and improvisation.
