A recent winner of the Korean Folk Music of the Year award, Coreyah was also nominated for the best jazz-crossover album of the year. This alone is clear proof that Coreyah has managed to cross the boundary of contemporary pop and folk music.
The band, whose special line-up includes the players of both traditional folk and modern instruments, made its debut in 2010. They call what they are doing living Korean music, something that naturally integrates, and assimilates in a single style, traditional Korean music, Western rock, Balkan folklore, and for that matter, the musical heritage of any other region.
Coreyah has already performed with success in Belgium, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Australia, Singapore, Qatar and Oman. Their third album came out in 2016.
