Korean Shamanic Folk-Funk Juggernaut Ak Dan Gwang Chil Recorded Live at WOMEX: A globalFEST Preview

There's a flowering folk-roots revival in South Korea - but no band combines virtuosity, charisma, and pure energy like Ak Dan Gwang Chil (ADG7). Three powerhouse singers and six virtuoso players combine for breakneck-speed roots-romps.

ADG7 was chosen to perform at the prestigious globalFEST world music showcase at Manhattan's Copacabana Sunday night January 12th. They were also selected to showcase at October’s influential WOMEX World Music Expo in Finland.
