"one of my most memorable Tiny Desk Concerts of all time." - Bob Boilen, NPR -

“SsingSsing, from Korea, drew its songs and vocal style from Korean folk tradition, but transmogrified them by way of glam-rock, disco and psychedelia: an irreverent but intriguing hybrid.” - The New York Times -

What do you get when you mix authentic, traditional Korean vocals with rock band flare, then add in some extravagant visuals and a transfixing stage presence? You get SsingSsing, Korea’s top rock/folk fusion act. Formed when six musicians from diverse genres aligned creative forces, this eccentric band welds two totally disparate elements: rock band bravado and deep-rooted Korean folk. SsingSsing skillfully blends these styles and presents them in a contemporary and accessible context with components of ballads, pop, and spiritual rituals.

SsingSsing creates a distinctive musical atmosphere as they incorporate Korean traditional composition, such as GyeonggiSori (folk songs from central province around Seoul), SeodoSori (folk songs from northwestern provinces in North Korea), and Seoul Gut (shamanistic ritual from Seoul) in their highly nuanced and entertaining work.

Performers: Hee-moon Lee (lead vocal), Da-hye Choo (vocal), Seung-tae Shin (vocal), Young-gyu Jang (Music Director/bass guitar), Tae-won Lee (electric guitar/keyboard), and Chul-hee Lee (drums).
