Gonia is a jazz group with a sophisticated understanding of Korean rhythms and high-level performances. The group has already proved itself on the jazz scene and is drawing attention at home and abroad through in-depth research on Korean rhythms and collaboration with traditional Korean instruments.
Based on the simple traditional Korean rhythms on the janggu, Gonia has created a new style of K-jazz. In November 2020, Gonia’s fifth album, A Tension, was released and nominated for the Crossover Album category of the 18th Korean Popular Music Awards, where it received recognition for its value and achievements.
The breath of Gutgeori, the joy of Jajinmori, and the dynamism that comes from Whimori are harmonized with improvisation, and the beauty of jazz to create Gonia’s unique sound and drives the band’s activity not only in Korea but also abroad.
