Where Classical Music Meets Korean Tradition.

‘CelloGayageum’ was founded in 2016 by Austrian cellist Sol Daniel Kim and Korean Gayageum player Dayoung Yoon. The inspiration to create this intercultural duo came from the "Pavillon of Unification" located in Berlin, a city shaped by a tragic history of war, division, and reunion.
The duo was awarded several prizes such as the ‘Soorim Culture Prize’ given by the <Soorim Cultural Foundation> in 2018 and the same year also received a generous grant from the <Seoul Foundation of Arts and Culture> to produce their first album “South Wave, North Wind”. In 2020 they became the ‘Artist of the Year’ of the <Jeongdong Theater> in Seoul.
The co-existence of the West and the Far East, which is also reflected by the musical and cultural background of both artists, acts as a catalyst and enables the musicians to discover new ways to make and create music. Sol Daniel Kim and Dayoung Yoon are constantly searching and experimenting to combine the characteristics of their respective musical cultures and instruments, finding the right balance and forming a harmonic symbiosis in sound and style.
It is their goal and passion to not only perform music to a broad audience but also serve as cultural ambassadors presenting the traditional music culture of South Korea to the whole world.
All their pieces are original and written by the two artists.
