Freight & Salvage | Berkeley, CA

They’re not your daughter’s K-Pop band! The nine-piece South Korean ensemble ADG7 (aka Ak Dan Gwang Chil) draws equal inspiration from newly reclaimed Korean folk styles of gut and minyo and the contemporary Eurocentric stylings of modern K-Pop for music for a mix that will surprise you with its raucous, danceable energy. The band’s charismatic and ultra-fashionably dressed trio of frontwomen are backed by masterfully played traditional Korean instrumentation and present a distinctively theatrical style of performance that's like nothing you've ever heard before, but that you'll never forget. You won't want to miss the crowd-pleasing sonic sensations that The New York Times calls “catchy, bouncy and brash.”
ADG7 was organized in 2015, the year Korea commemorated its 70th anniversary of national liberation. By reconnecting with and reimaging shared Korean cultural roots, ADG7 expresses the true meaning of liberation and the desire for unification. The group's recognitions include Best Group at the 2018 KBS Korean Traditional Music Awards and the Sori Frontier Award at the 2017 Jeongju International Sori Festival, plus official showcase performances at WOMEX 2019 and globalFEST 2020. ADG7 has completed their 3-month long World Tour in 2022 including WOMAD, Roskilde Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival to name a few.
Band Members: Kim Yak Dae (Daeguem), Lee Man Wol (Piri & Saenghwang), Choi Byung Hwal (Ajaeng), Woen Meondongmaru (Gayaguem), Chun Gung Dal (Percussion), Sunwoo Barabarabarabam (Percussion), Hong Ok (Singer), Myeong Wol (Singer), and Yoo Wol (Singer)
