Kim So Ra: A Sign of Rain
A breakout star in Korean traditional music, award-winning percussionist and composer Kim So Ra is one of the most skilled and internationally renowned janggu (Korean double-headed drum) players performing today. She is known for her genre-bending performances, which combine traditional Korean styles and instrumentation with contemporary influences and visuals. She joins us on her debut tour of the United States, which includes dates at the Philadelphia Folk Festival and Lincoln Center. For her project “A Sign of Rain” she is joined by fellow drummer Hyun Seung Hun, as well as Lim Ji Hye (on the gayageum or Korean zither), and Lee Hye Joong (on the piri or Korean bamboo oboe). If you enjoyed the fluid, expressive style of Omar Sosa and Seckou Keita, you’ll be transported by Kim So Ra’s otherworldly playing.
