Dongyang Gozupa

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

Dongyang Gozupa are like nothing you have ever heard before – or everything you have heard but all at the same time. Quite simply, the most magically mesmerising mixed-up minds in music.


The past decade has seen a truly electrifying wave of artists using Korean folk and classical music to discover new directions in sound – think Jambinai and Black String – and Dongyang Gozupa can claim their place among them.   The Korean group, are turning the power trio on its head, using tropes of their national music to make genre-splicing sounds
