Akdan Gwangchil

It was founded in 2015 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the liberation from Japan. Their materials are the songs and gut of Hwanghae-do singing the true liberation aiming at the reunion of two Koreas. Based on profound understanding and excellent play of the songs and gut, they present unique pieces that contemporary people would enjoy and share together. With various trials like combining traditional music with electronica and projecting images on the screen, they try to find the possibilities of developing modernized gut and music using the traditional materials.
