About the Artists

Kim So Ra

A multi-award winning Korean traditional percussionist, composer, and ambassador of Honam Province Jeongeup folk music, Kim So Ra is one of the most skilled and prominent Janggu (Korean double-headed drum) players in Korea. Kim is known for her genre-bending performances combining Korean traditional sounds with creative, charismatic and modern interpretations.

Kim has performed at SXSW 2019, WOMEX 2018, and Mundial Montreal 2018 as official showcase artist and Kim’s latest album, A Sign of Rain was nominated as the best jazz & crossover album at the Korean Music Awards 2019.

Rajna Swaminathan

Boston/New York-based mrudangam artist and composer Rajna Swaminathan brings together a unique ensemble of Toronto-based improvisers for a collaborative exploration of sound and movement. Rajna’s compositional project, Mangal, is inspired by the Sanskrit ‘mangal’ — signifying harmonious or auspicious timing — and the more obscure English meaning of ‘mangal,’ referring to an assemblage of mangrove trees, whose rhizome roots are entangled together, blurring the boundaries between individual and collective. This hybrid imagery of serendipitous multiplicity serves as a poetic impulse for improvisational expansion and interdisciplinary resonance. Photo credit for Adrien Tillmann.
