Jambinai live in London - review

Live Review

Venue: Oslo, London

South Korean trio Jambinai seriously impress the crowds in London

It’s tempting to describe Jambinai’s sonic onslaught in purely apocalyptic terms, but such is the subtlety in tonight’s stunning performance, this is more akin to the power of the Big Bang and the start of something beautiful.

The South Korean trio of Kim Bo-mi (haegeum), Lee Il-woo (guitar, vocals and piri) and Sim Eun-yong (geomungo) – here augmented by a bassist and drummer – have been making waves in the West by blending traditional music from their homeland with post-rock sensibilities.
