East Asia

Project Type



April 2023

East Asian folk music encompasses a diverse array of musical traditions from countries such as China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, each with its own distinctive styles, instruments, and cultural influences. From the delicate melodies of Chinese guqin to the spirited rhythms of Korean samulnori, these traditions reflect centuries of history, spirituality, and social customs. Instruments like the pipa, shamisen, gayageum, and erhu feature prominently, weaving intricate melodies that evoke the landscapes, traditions, and philosophies of East Asia. Whether performed during ceremonial rituals, seasonal festivals, or everyday gatherings, East Asian folk music serves as a vital link to cultural heritage, fostering a sense of community and connection among its diverse peoples.
