Korea - Land of the Morning Calm: Kayagum Performances by Yi Jiyoung
"I think the most charming aspect of the kayagum is that I play the natural silk strings directly with my fingertips. As my hands play the instrument, my personality, my physical being, and even my day’s mood appear immediately in tones." - Yi Jiyoung. As leader of Contemporary Music Ensemble Korea and professor at Yongin University near Seoul, Yi Jiyoung promotes both traditional expression and modern exploration. These live performance excerpts from the spring of 1998 represent the music of an artist from the rising generation of Korean musicians.
