CelloGayageum Student Matinee at the Stockton Performing Arts Center

February 5, 2024 @ 2:30 pm - 6:00 pm

CelloGayageum is a unique intercultural musical duo consisting of cellist Sol Daniel Kim and Gayageum player Dayoung Yoon. The idea to create this duo came from their visit to the “Pavillon of Unification” in Berlin, a city shaped by a tragic history of war, division, and reunion. By seamlessly blending the musical cultures and instruments of the cello and Gayageum, they create a harmonious symbiosis in both sound and style.

Since their formation in 2016, CelloGayageum has received recognition and awards including the Soorim Culture Prize, as well as a grant from the Seoul Foundation of Arts and Culture to produce their first album, South Wave, North Wind. In 2020, they were named “Artist of the Year” by the Jeongdong Theater in Seoul.

In addition to their musical pursuits, CelloGayageum is also committed to sharing their love of traditional South Korean music with a wider audience. They have appeared on popular Korean primetime TV shows such as KBS, JTBC, and MBN, and have toured in Asia, including Japan and Turkey, as well as throughout Europe in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, and Spain. By performing for a broad audience and serving as cultural ambassadors, CelloGayageum is helping to promote the traditional music culture of South Korea to the world.

“An extraordinary collaboration between East and West featuring the two similar yet different instruments.” The Korea Times
