Korean musician Luna Lee is an incredibly talented performer who skillfully covers such rock songs as “Space Oddity“, “Love Me Tender“, “Back in Black“, “Stairway to Heaven“, “Layla” and a great many more on a modified Gayageum, a traditional multi-stringed instrument with deep historical roots.
…the gayageum that I play is an ancient, traditional Korean instrument made for the purpose of playing traditional Korean music. My ancestors played the gayageum in a small room, so the sound did not need to be loud. But my music is performed with modern instruments such as the drums, bass and the guitar. So I had to redevelop my gayageum so that the sound would match that of the modern instrument. …Playing modern music on a traditional instrument was not an easy process. I have come a long way from the beginning but still have a long way to go!
