Sanity Sunday - Luna Lee and the Gayageum

by Nomad

The word "gayageum" might sound like a senior LGBT organization but in fact, it is a traditional 12- string Korean musical instrument. The Gayageum was probably manufactured around the 6th century, in the time of King Kasil in the Kaya Kingdom.

One musician who plays contemporary music on the gayageum is Luna Lee. She has performed covers songs by such groups as
Rolling Stones, Queen, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. 
"The gayageum has a beautiful sound and amazing potential so I wanted to share my music with many people."
In the first selection, Luna plays the 2003 single, Starry Night by guitarist Joe Satriani.

Here's the Fleetwood Mac rock classic, Landslide

Here's her album entitled EP, released June 2016.

Have a great Sunday, folks.
