Dongyang Gozupa with Mei Han

Dongyang Gozupa

“Dongyang Gozupa” is a progressive rock band based on Korean Traditional Music with Yanggeum (Korean hammered dulcimer), Bass and Percussions. Dohyuk JANG, a Percussionist of a rock band that won the Korean Popular Music Awards, started this band with Eunhwa YUN, a top- notch Yanggeum player. Recently, Bassist Minhwi HAM known for his creative performance, joined as a new bass player.

It is not easy to express their music in one genre. Their music incorporates various elements such as progressive rock, post-rock, and traditional music. They play a splendid and speedy performance with very strong sounds.

“Dongyang Gozupa gave as usual an energetic show that leaves the audience satisfied and almost out of breath. The band found its unique sound – a mesmerizing combination of tradition alongside psychedelia and progressive rock. The energy between all the members of the band manages to reach the last spectator in the audience. I don’t know of any similar band that performs their music in such a unique way.”
