Gamin: Exotic Beauty over the Korea's Tradition
Gamin had a solo recital concert, “Gamin’s Piri, Meet the World!” at Bennett Media Studio in New York in 2011. Under the same concept of connecting the old (traditional music) and new (contemporary music), this performance will feature more diversity in her musical instruments, such as Piri, Taepyeongso, and Saenghwang, meeting the sophisticated sounds from new experimental languages of contemporary music.
This performance aims to introduce the vibrancy and diversity of Korean traditional music by working with musicians of other disciplines including Jazz, Classical and Contemporary music. Gamin’s performance will contribute towards creating new works and collaborations with other world artists. This group will show that traditional music is not limited in one’s country but can be combined with other music genres in different parts of the world.
