Danpyunsun and the Sailors

Psychedelic folk band Danpyunsun and the Sailors started as a solo project of Danpyunsun, a Seoul-based artist born in 1986. He was equally inspired by the local folk, Korean pop songs and Western indie music.

His band – also including the violinist Ji-Young Kwon Ji Young and Do-Hyuk Jang on percussion – seeks a “glocal” Asian sound adequate for the 21st century. Here’s their expressive new single, “공 Ball”.

You can hear more music by Danpyunsun on his Soundcloud profile. He’s also on Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook.
