Jambinai biography
JAMBINAI (잠비나이) are an experimental South Korean post rock band that mix Korean traditional and folk music (gugak) with post/avant rock/metal, using both traditional rock instruments (drums, bass guitar, electric guitar) and traditional Korean instruments (haegeum, piri, geomungo). Their blending of genres have garnered almost as much resentment from Korean traditional musicians as their music has received praise from critics and fans.

The band was founded after the three core members - Ilwoo LEE (guitar and piri (bamboo oboe)), Eunyoung SIM (geomungo (zither)) and Bomi KIM (haegum (fiddle-like instrument)) - met in 2009 at Korea's National University of Arts while studying traditional Korean music, and again, after graduation, after attending a mutual friend's concert. They started talking about Korean traditional music, and soon after they founded JAMBINAI, with the aim of presenting gugak in the contemporary music scene, and in part as a reaction to the growing popularity of generic K-Pop.

In 2011, they released a three song self-titled EP through GMC Records. During the summer of 2011, the band performed at the Incheon Pentaport Rock Festival. Then, in November, they came in second place, and won the "Jury Prize", at the EBS Hello Rookie Final. The following year they released their full length album debut, "Différance", which led them to win "Best Crossover Album" and nomination for "Best Jazz & Crossover Performance" at the 2013 Korean Music Awards.

The next three years the band, as a quintet with touring members DOKYO 13 (bass) and Mounghoon RYU (drums), toured South Korea, Europe, Brazil and the US, including performances at major international festivals such as the World Village Festival in Finland, Cena Contemporanea in Brazil, WOMEX in Wales, and the Oslo World Music Festival in Norway.

In 2016 they released their sophomore album, "A Hermitage (隱棲은서)".

Highly recommended to fans of NINE INCH NAILS, SWANS and GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR, and to those in search of truly original and innovative post rock.
