[KCW] World Music Ensemble E-do on the Millennium Stage

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. proudly presents a genre-defying performance by World Music Ensemble E-Do, as part of Korean Culture Week at the Kennedy Center, Nov. 7-9. 

World Music Ensemble E-Do is an ensemble of six talented musicians who combine traditional and contemporary rhythms with consummate ease. The group’s name comes from the first name of King Sejong the Great, a towering figure during Korea’s ancient Joseon Dynasty. The philosophical background for E-Do's music is to create music for the modern era that can be enjoyed by all and to share it freely in Korea and beyond.

Wednesday, November 8 at 6:00 p.m. 

Millennium Stage at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts 

2700 F St NW, Washington, DC 20566 


E-Do presents audiences with the traditions of Korean traditional music, known as gugak, as well as modern Korean music, along with an engaging mix of traditional and modern instruments, highlighting the beauty and balance of traditional Korean music. The group’s works include original songs based on traditional music as well as fresh interpretations of traditional repertoires.
