"Hanguk namja" was formed in 2017 and received favorable reviews for presenting creative and high-quality music based on the new musical composition of Gyeonggi folk songs and jazz. 

In this Los Angeles performance, various folk songs from Gyengsangdo area such as Nanbong-ga, Beteul-ga, and Cheongchun-ga, which are representative songs of Hanguk Namja, and Gyeonggi jobga will be performed. It will be the perfect musical encounter of Korean folk songs, jazz, Eastern and Western music.  

The Korean traditional vocalist Lee Hee-moon has been at the forefront of the new approach and popularization of Korean traditional music (gugak) by collaborating with various music genres such as pop, jazz, and rock. In the United States, he was the first ever Asian musician to appear on NPR Music tiny Desk Concert as a project group "Ssing Ssing" in 2017, which has now reached 7.6 million views on YouTube.
