Electric Shaman Reinterprets Traditional Korean Folk Songs

From Asian American Press: “‘Electric Shaman’ reinterprets South and North Korean folk songs through an ensemble conceived from electric guitarist John Chang, bass guitarist Jorge Mesa and Vong Pak, who performs traditional drum and vocal for the group. The resulting sound is a unique crossover of genre and time. ‘There are no boundaries in what music can do,’ says Vong. ‘In Electric Shaman, musics from different worlds and instruments from different times all come together to make a harmony. It is a testimony that in our lives, a true harmony can be achieved.'” I’m intrigued by music that truly creates new intersections in terms of context, generation, and culture. Looking forward to hearing more.

About Mihee

Mihee lives in the Mid-West with her husband, toddler-aged twins (yes, terrible twos is actually a thing), and baby #3. Though her reserve of brain cells is seriously depleted she is still passionate about Asian American culture, religion and social justice for marginalized people, stories about Korea, sports, and power naps. During the day, she spends a lot of time trying to remember which baby needs to eat or get a diaper change, mentoring and ministering to college students, occasionally taking a walk, writing, watching Sportscenter, or grabbing coffee.
