Founded in 2011, Fairytale is a Korean music band that uses a hybrid style to keep traditional music alive while seeking to create music with pure sensibility. Fairytale's music is inspired by traditional Korean poems and songs, and they are major contributors to the popularization of Korean traditional music. At the same time, Fairytale promotes contemporaneity and popularity, transforming the old and conservative image of Korean traditional music to promote a place for traditional music in modern Korean pop culture.
Fairytale features Korean traditional instruments such as the daegum (a Korean bamboo flute, played by Seo Youseok), the geomungo (a Korean folk zither, played by Choi Jinyoung), and the haegum (a Korean fiddle, played by Ko Yunjin). Fairytale also includes percussions (played by Kim Kyuyoun), the piano (played by Oh Youngjin), and vocal song (by Jang Myeongseo).
Join us in saying goodbye to the Year of the Rooster and welcoming the Year of the Dog at the Wang Center's signature Lunar New Year Festival! This year, we will showcase Vietnamese songs and musical tales, as well as offer family craft activities from China, Japan, and Korea, including Japanese new year wreath-making, Korean fortune pouch-making, Chinese paper cutting, and much more.
Co-presented with the Confucius Institute at Stony Brook University.
