If I was to choose one musician, whose music I love but I know little about, and who would therefore make an ideal guest on Far Side Radio, that musician would be Yu Kyung-Hwa. I first heard her extraordinary album of chulhyungeum, slide iron stringed zither music, about eight years ago. I sent copies to various guitar musician friends in the US, UK, Japan and India and all of them loved it. Who knows, perhaps a collaboration might come out of it? When asked in a questionnaire on the K-Music festival in London in 2016, which artist I would like to see perform in the future, I wrote down Kyung-Hwa. Two years later, here she is at the Resonance studio, playing live, talking about her music and her project E-Do, who she performed with in London. Fate? Serendipity? who knows, but I felt very lucky and blessed to have Kyung-Hwa sitting in front of me. A special show for me and wonderful to see her artistry close up.
