Gayageum – Korean Musical Instrument


Gayageum (가야금) is one of the many Korean traditional instruments, let’s say it’s kinda like a violin but with different sounds.

Gayageum is probably one of the more famous Korean instruments and they had this show of it at the Incheon Airport in South Korea.  I had a few hours before my plane left back for San Francisco so I took a video for all you to see:

Gayageum might sound a bit “off” to those of you hearing it for the first time but that is how it’s supposed to sound and how Korean traditional songs sound like.

Also you can see more Korean instruments I outlined in the Cheonggyecheon floats.
