The Song of the Willow by Music Group NaMu

Officially debuting in 2017, NaMu is a four-member band led by Aram Lee, focuses on traditional Korean music, creating an ensemble of classical music, jazz, and hypnotic sounds. Ajaeng and Janggu [Korean musical instruments] player Minwang Hwang, vocalist and percussionist Seongryong Yeo, and acoustic and electric bass player Inhwan Choi produce pure harmony with Aram’s euphonic notes on daegeum and yanggeum which are traditional Korean instruments.

In collaboration with InKo Centre in Chennai, the Honorary Consulate Office brought a group of artists who gave Hyderabad and Guntur a taste of traditional Korean instrumental music with a contemporary twist. The performances were held at the Guntur Club, Guntur on September 18th, 2018 and the DST Auditorium at the University of Hyderabad campus on Thursday, September 20th 2018. The group focuses on combining a wide range of different genres and even had an impromptu interlude on stage with the India Artists at the UoH campus.
