Jambinai has made a name for themselves by making it to the top 6th place at one of UK's most famous rock festivals 'ArcTanGent 2017'. There's something special in their music that captivates the listeners. While they're all gugak majors from school, they do not yield to the conventional framework of what a traditional music should be. Rather, they came together for one simple purpose: Make their own music.Naburak - The Birth of Stars
Jambinai first started off with guitar and piri player Lee Il-woo, haegeum performer Kim Bomi and geomungo player Shim Eun-yong. With the addition of a bassist and a drummer, Jambinai was complete. They say everytime they're standing in front of an enthusiastic audience waving the Korean flag at their performances abroad, a new wave of passion always grips their hearts.Connection - Dazzling Planets Collide To Make A Universe
