Seoul Music: The Rise of Korean R&B

21 Nov Seoul Music: The Rise of Korean R&B

Presented by breakout artist Gallant, Seoul Music: The Rise of Korean R&B is a mini-documentary chronicling his exploration of the country’s emerging KR&B scene. Developed in association with Red Bull Sound, Seoul Music “culminates in Gallant’s performance of ‘Skipping Stones’ with rising star Lee Hi during his headlining slot at Jisan Valley Rock Festival in South Korea. While exploring all that South Korea has to offer, the music of Seoul lead Gallant to bond with artists like Jinbo the SuperFreak and DJ Soulscape — who have long been at the helm the ever-evolving subgenre.”

“The amount of love that I have for Seoul is never ending,” states Gallant. “I was a fan of K-Pop back in high school and later on in college it kind of took over as the leading Eastern musical genre.Over time Korean artists started writing their own songs and creating their own movements, which was the thread that pulled me into learning more about the history and delving into exactly what this emerging KR&B scene was really like.” Link
