Jambinai present Korean traditional music in a new and innovative way, with their ground-breaking post-rock sound that combines folk, metal, jazz and ambient electronic elements in a mix of traditional Korean and modern instruments. With their huge following they have wowed stages at major rock festivals, including Glastonbury and Robert Smith’s Meltdown. Their third Bella Union record Onda has just been released.

  • 'An enthralling post-rock group – imagine Godspeed You! Black Emperor melded with strange and wonderful traditional instruments' (Guardian)
  • ‘Post-punk gusto, summoning a brutalist cacophony that is leavened by passages of exquisite tranquillity and post-rock progression’ (★★★★ Q)
  • ‘Korea’s Jambinai impressed with their genre-blurring sound, applying traditional folk instruments to eruptive instrumental drone-rock reminiscent of Sonic Youth’ (★★★★ Times)
  • 'Astonishing audiences at festivals around the world as leaders of the new wave in contemporary Korean music.' (Simon Broughton/Songlines)
