Reception to follow the performance

Join us at the Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. for the launch of the KCC Garden Concert Series, featuring a striking cross-cultural performance by Rami Seo’s Project World Music Ensemble on July 16. Korean Fever: Returns rekindles the unique energy of Korean performing arts through a thrilling combination of traditional strings, keyboard, guitar, and vocals, headlined by the acclaimed New York-based master of the Korean gayageum zither, Rami Seo. Jazz, K-Pop, and classical influences all converge in this innovative performance. This new concert series opens up the Korean Cultural Center’s recently renovated outdoor garden, where guests can enjoy the healing power of music and nature, shaded by verdant bamboo at twilight.
Korean Fever: Returns features four stellar performers in a variety of ensemble arrangements: gayageumist Rami Seo, keyboardist and N.E.X.T. band member Hyunsoon Ji, guitarist SAE, and vocalist Saebom Shin, a.k.a. Sound of Spring. For more on these performers, visit our full online event listing HERE .
Rami Seo's Project World Music Ensemble was founded in 2007 by Rami Seo, master of the traditional Korean 12-string zither and 25-string zither, also known as the gayageum. Rami Seo brought together like-minded masters of iconic instruments from diverse world music traditions to create captivating multicultural music that transcends any single style or genre. For this Washington DC tour, four members of the group will participate in this concert: Rami Seo (gayageum), Hyunsoo Ji (keyboard), SAE (guitar), and Sound of Spring (vocals). The group will perform various genres of music including jazz, classic, and K-pop that are created by focusing on Korean traditional music.
The KCC Garden Concert Series, launched in 2019, aims to push the boundaries of performing arts by blending nature and art through live shows set amidst beautiful outdoor scenery. In the KCC's patio garden just behind the building, traditional Korean lanterns shine bright against a backdrop of skyward-reaching bamboo and seasonal flora. This series moves beyond the formal performance venue format, welcoming casual fans, mood seekers, and serious music lovers alike in a uniquely open setting.
