K-music 2022: Dongyang Gozupa tour
Dongyang Gozupa (translated as “eastern high frequency”) defy description. They stormed the K-Music Festival last year with their wild mix of trail-blazing percussion combined with the yanggeum (hammered dulcimer) to create highly intense and hard-hitting progressive post-rock, merging power and beautiful melodies.
Dohyuk Jang – percussion
Eunhwa Yun – yanggeum
Minhwi Ham – bass
