LOS ANGELES, Oct. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Korean Cultural Center Los Angeles presents ADG7 (Ak Dan Gwang Chil) US Tour 2021.
"A most astonishing show musically and immensely entertaining- Ak Dan Gwang Chil from South Korea. WOW!!!" (Bob Boilen, NPR Music)
"The nine-member ensemble presents itself not as earnest traditionalists, but as a giddy show band with all the trappings of K-pop — choreographed singers, candy-colored costumes and bouncy, upbeat, often swinging songs that link the concision of folk tunes to the catchy repetition of pop, with brash cymbals for drive and flute and zither lines for instrumental hooks." (The New York Times)
"There’s a flowering folk-roots revival in South Korea – but no band combines virtuosity, charisma, and pure energy like Ak Dan Gwang Chil" (WFMU)

About The Band
With one foot in the world of tradition and another in glitzy upbeat pop, ADG7 is a multi-award-winning group featuring three powerhouse female folk singers and a rich repertoire inspired by Korea’s sacred, shamanic ritual music (gut) and beloved folk songs (Minyo) of Hwanghae Province in the northern reaches of the peninsula. Their powerful performances engage and immerse like no other, presenting the spiritual blessings and positive energy of traditional music in a thoroughly modern and often comical style.
The group’s recognitions include Best Group at the 2018 KBS Korean Traditional Music Awards and the Sori Frontier Award at the 2017 Jeonju International Sori Festival, plus recent performances at WOMEX (World Music Expo) 2019 and globalFEST 2020 as an official artists and upcoming shows as a grantee of Mid Atlantic Tours’ 2020-2021 touring roster.
