CD Reviews

This is a nice foray into a lesser known style of music.
(4 out of 5 stars)

"For those of you who are looking for a little cultural variance, this album is a well-produced introduction into the world or Korean Traditional Music. It has overtones of some more energetic opera pieces while still reminding one of a culture not heavily explored. The strong three-beat of Korean music is brought out with a kind of kettle drum called the changgo. Most prevalent however is the zither-like instrument known as the komungo. Hearing An Bichwi sing the excerpts included on this album makes one want to hear a full 4-hour production. Truly if one is unable to experience this music live, this is the next best thing."
