Haegeum* player Kang Eunil (강은일) has released "Ancient Futures" - her first album to encompass various musical genres: traditional, classical, jazz and improvisation (used for soundtrack of kim ki-duk's movie "hwal"). Unlike most of her fellow young musicians these days, she starts everything from "traditional Korean music" - which for her is the sole source of energy - while selectively picking up fusion and crossover. She has greatly broadened the scope of her instrument, playing with famous musicians and orchestras both at home and abroad. Kang has long been interested in the possibility of bringing her instrument to a wider audience by experimenting with crossover music and this has led to her collaborative work on popular songs with a number of famous jazz musicians. *Haegum is a Korean string instrument, which has been around since the Goryeo Dynasty (918~1392).

Composed of a body with two strings, a horsehair bow is used to produce sounds by moving the bow between the strings. Haegum creates calm and gentle as well as powerful tones. Due to its variety of tones (almost two octaves) and expressions, it is regarded as a highly versatile instrument. Haegum played a prominent role in Korean court ensemble and ceremonial music in the past.

These days, Haegum is regarded as the most adaptable instrument among the Korean instruments, which can be used in various genres, including Western classical, jazz and new age to create a whole new style of music.
