Jiha Park

Composer and multi-instrumentalist Jiha Park plays the traditional Korean piri (a double reed bamboo flute), the yanggeum (a hammered dulcimer), as well as the saenghwang, an impressive mouth organ constructed from 24 bamboo pipes, vertically mounted in a metal windchest. Her music is characterized by elements of minimalism, ambient music and free jazz, with influences of traditional Korean music, based on different sound layers and an unconventional interplay of space and time. Jiha Park has released two albums so far: her self-produced debut album “Communion”(2018) and “Philos”(2019) on Tak:til/ Glitterbeat Records.
