Korea’s ancient percussion tradition encompasses rituals, songs and incantations that align with elemental powers. Kim So Ra’s A Sign of Rain offers a rare Bay Area opportunity to experience some of Korea’s most celebrated traditional musicians, artists dedicated to combining old and new, East and West.

An award-winning percussionist, composer, and ambassador of Jeongeup folk music, Kim So Ra is one of the most skilled and prominent masters of Korea’s double-sided janggu drum. For this performance she joins forces with her husband, dancer and multi-instrumentalist Seung-Hun Hyun, Lim Ji Hye on gayageum (Korean zither), and Lee Hye Joong on piri (Korean bamboo oboe). Their project A Sign of Rain was nominated at the 2019 Korean Music Awards for Best Jazz & Crossover Album.
