Asian Sound Revolution – Pulse | Jin Hi Kim & Ensemble

This ensemble performed in the DFT Auditorium in 2018 to celebrate the reopening of the DIA’s Asian Galleries. Led by Jin Hi Kim, these six musicians, all trained in traditional instruments of their cultural heritage, came together to create a contemporary performance rooted in tradition.

The segment shown in this video features solos by Samir Chatterjee on the tabla (Indian) and Susie Ibarra on the kulintang (Filipino). The rolling ensemble pieces give insight into the modern pulse of these traditional sounds.
