Expertly melding ancient instruments with modern flair, the six-piece Korean band Coreyah crafts an exuberant new breed of music that breaks the barrier between the traditional and the contemporary. Rooted in Korean folklore, the members of Coreyah strive to create “living Korean music” by folding in American rock, Balkan gypsy music, Latin American dance music, African rhythms, and anything else that crosses their path.
Formed in 2010, Coreyah is Dong-Kun Kim (daegeum, sogeum, tungso), Boyoung Ham (vocals), Halee Jeong (geomungo, yanggeum), Cho-Rong Kim (janggu, jing, kkwaenggwari), Sangheum Park (guitar), and Kyungyi (percussion). In 2012, Coreyah proved that traditional music could attract just as much attention as flashy pop when they reached the top 16 on the Korean music reality show Top Band II. Having toured widely in Asia, North America, and Europe, winning widespread acclaim at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Coreyah is now making its Lincoln Center debut.
