Extracting intricate and experimental compositions from stringed folk instruments the gayageum and geomungo


An astonishing performance


For the first time, the K-Music Festival presents the live performance of Dal:um commissioned by the Yeowoorak Festival, the National Theatre of Korea. The two festivals have joined forces and will continue to work together to present the very best of Korean talent.

Dal:um is a Seoul-based musical duo who challenges the sonic possibilities of Korea’s most well-known traditional string instruments: the gayageum (played by Ha Suyean) and geomungo (played by Hwang Hyeyoung). Ethereal and otherworldly, Dal:um creates a compelling soundworld that treasures subtle dynamics and the space between the notes.

Despite their apparent similarity, the gayageum and geomungo are surprisingly different from each other in structure, playing techniques and tone. Dal:um will show how innovative interpretations create a harmony of strong energy and beautiful voices of the two instruments.

Dal:um’s beautifully balanced and expansive music is defined by inspired dialogue and creative paradox. They released the first album very recently on Glitterbeat’s label imprint tak:til.
