SOREA Band is a modern Korean traditional music band.
Sorea Band was formed in 2005; the name is a compound word for ‘Soul of Korea’ and their intention is to share the Soul of Korea with global citizens. The band is a combination of world trends and Korean traditional instruments, generating a new Korean traditional value by developing creative performances.
In 2005 won the Gold Award in the Creative Korean Traditional Music competition and it then received the Best new Album Award from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism Secretary in 2006.
I had never hear of them until recently, a Korean friend of mine introduce me to Sorea Claiming they played Modern Korean music using Traditional Korean Instruments and had Bboys performances, I've talked about Bboys before and since I'm sort of a new Kpop fan I decided to check it out.
The 1st thing I did was check out their YouTube channel and watch some of their Videos.
You can also watch an interview with Sorea's Producer/Creative Director Moon Ryu, it's an interview from Arirang's show "Heart to Heart", basically a short explanation of what SOREA is and what they do.
They also have a Facebook account where you can find more information about recent presentations or upcoming shows!
You can also follow them on Twitter.

If you don't know anything about Korean Music and somehow you feel it's no fun, SOREA Band might change your mind about it, remember not everyone in Korea listens to Kpop and this is a great way to get to know a little bit more about Korean Traditional Music.
