In collaboration with the Korean Embassy in the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Sookmyung Gayageum Orchestra presents its wide-ranging repertoire of music played entirely on the gayageum, Korea’s iconic 12-stringed zither-like instrument, from traditional Korean music to hits by the Beatles, South American folk songs, and even a break- dance style rendition of Pachelbel’s ‘Canon’. Established in 1999, the orchestra has set a new benchmark in the local cultural scene and the brought the distinct sounds of Korean music to all corners of the globe.
