With Nature as their musical theme, the female Korean folk group Duobud presents music of comfort and healing with traditional percussion and gayageum melodies.

The combination of percussion and string highlights the contrast between percussive expressions of direct and explosive energies and lyrical string melodies. The percussion is so delicate that one’s breath can be heard while the Korean harp is played with a boldness reminiscent of electronic sounds. The resultant music, uniquely expands the expressive realms of both percussive and melodic instruments.

Badi means superlative sori (music) that a student learns and refines under the guidance of his/her teacher. The group Badi is a music band who reinterpret traditional folk music, which is considered rather difficult to understand. Since their inception, they have composed and arranged their oeuvre to present a musical vocabulary that is refreshing and unique.



Badi has always debated about what melody and songs accurately captured the lives of the people in days when folk music was popular. Badi reinterprets the values of the past from the point of view and in order to retrospect with their music. This song was created using the characteristics of the menari-tori (melodic mode) as a reference to Jisinbapgi (a village ritual) in Gyeongsang-do. Jisinbapgi is a ritual in performed at the beginning of the lunar calendar with people in the village praying for peace, health, good harvests and blessings for the community at large. Through this piece, Badi wishes all its listeners, the best for the future.
