Classical & Traditional Korean Music
Kaya is a traditional live Korean music ensemble consisting of two musicians playing the Gayageum, a Korean traditional harp, and an acoustic guitar. Traditional Korean music includes both the folk and court music styles of the Korean people that can be traced to the beginning of the Joseon Dynasty in 1392. The Duo have been performing together since 2002.
They’ve performed for various diplomatic, corporate, cultural, educational and events in the UK, including at London City Hall, British Museum, Asia House, Oxford University, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, St. Vincent’s Nursing Home, Hobkirk House care home, etc.
Their repertoire includes traditional Korean pieces and compositions and various contemporary and Western-influenced pieces such as classical, film, and pop music. Gayageum is ideal for a themed party, high-end corporate event, or entertaining Oriental or Korean guests at a party.
