Coreyah has pioneered a new style of Korean music that blends genres of contemporary ethnic and popular sounds while maintaining the distinctive characteristics of traditional Korean instruments. Ancient rhythms combine with toe-tapping and hand-clapping dance beats set to the sounds of the soulful daegeum flute, electrifying geomungo zither, and forceful janggu hourglass drum. The group’s freewheeling, polystylistic vision combines a variety of influences, including Anglo-American rock, Balkan gypsy, and genres from South America and Africa. “The world needs more bands who are this much fun and willing to take chances” (New York Music Daily).
