About the event

They’re not your daughter’s K-Pop band!  The nine-piece South Korean ensemble ADG7 (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.  Fresh off of their recent show-stopping Tiny Desk Concert, you won't want to miss the crowd-pleasing sonic sensations that The New York Times calls “catchy, bouncy and brash.” ADG7: Korean Shamanic Folk-Pop is presented as a part of Lincoln Center’s Summer for the CityThis program is supported by Korea Arts Management Service. This engagement of ADG7 is funded through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
