Jambinai – K-Music 2019

The Concept

The first show of K-Music 2019, Jambinai presented Korean traditional music in a new and innovative way. Their ground-breaking post-rock sound that combines folk, metal, jazz and ambient electronic elements in a mix of traditional Korean and modern instruments. With their huge following, they have wowed stages at major rock festivals, including Glastonbury and Robert Smith’s Meltdown. Their third Bella Union record Onda has just been released. We were tasked to film an interview with the artist, the performance from multiple angles, and audience reactions after the show.
