E-DO were the musicians behind the 2017 LKL Performance of the Year (together with choreographer / dancer Yoo Sun-hoo in an Edinburgh Fringe show entitled After 4 – Over the Moon), and their 2015 album Yeominrok got a well-deserved rave review from World Music Central.

Kyung Hwa Yu

The rhythm-heavy ensemble of Ensemble E-DO is led by Kyung-Hwa Yu, one of the most acclaimed artists in Korea. Not only does the sextet employ traditional Korean instruments, such as the chulhyungeum, janggu and daegeum, but double bass and acoustic guitar play alongside, the sound finished by soaring pansori vocals. The performance will include visuals by Junsoo Kim.
