Avant-Garde Take on Korean Folk

Eccentric Korean band UhUhBoo Project are coming to Warsaw to give a concert Nov. 26 at the TR Warszawa theater. The group uses standard rock’n’roll instruments to produce unconventional sounds and combines them with Korean folk instruments such as the piri, a kind of bamboo flute. Their songs have enigmatic and ambiguous lyrics which are reminiscent of avant-garde poems.

UhUhBoo Project performances have often been described as highly theatrical, blending music with other art forms such as dance, film and the visual arts. Their music was featured in the movies Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and Night Fishing directed by Park Chan-wook.

The band have released four albums to date, including Break-Even Point (1997), Dog, Lucky Star (1998), 21C New Hair (2000), and Detective ID, Record of a Vagabond (2011). The albums and the band’s movie soundtracks have won them acclaim for a poetical and satirical approach to social and political themes. UhUhBoo Project have pursued a “hyper realistic” style that they have refined on subsequent albums and singles such as “Tuna World” from 2004.
