Featuring Hyelim Kim (Korea) - taegum (Korean flute) with Simon Barker - drum kit, Pei Anne Yeoh (Malaysia) - violin, Bae Il Dong (Korea) - voice, and others.
A meeting of Korean sounds and percussive rhythms.
Acclaimed young taegŭm virtuoso, Hyelim Kim is recognised internationally for her leading role in breathing new life into the traditional Korean bamboo flute. Performing both traditional compositions, as well as her own contemporary works, Kim collaborates with leading musicians all over the world, using her instrument to promote exchange with a wide-variety of musical cultures.
In this intimate concert, Kim’s expressive breath tones will be paired with the rhythmic force of Australian drummer Simon Barker who has pursued a long-term study of traditional Korean music. Complemented by cutting-edge musicians from the Australia Art Orchestra’s extraordinary pool of international collaborators, this Meeting Points concert will perfectly reflect the vibrancy of borderless contemporary music.
