ANIMAL DIVERS (SOUTH KOREA)
Animal Divers is an electronic world music duo from South Korea. With electronic music at its core, their music creates a dynamic sound that combines the Didgeridoo, Handpan, and Electric Guitar. Some thought combining these instruments would be impossible, but Animal Divers’ unique ideas make for a modern musical experience.
Ash (guitar), is an experienced songwriter, producer and guitarist based in Seoul and is a key figure in South Korea’s indie scene. Ash is also guitarist for psychedelic rock band, LudiSTELO, and has performed many music festivals around the world.
Jo Hyun (handpan/didgeridoo), first started playing around with the Didgeridoo and Handpan five years. At the time, people in South Korea barely knew what these instruments were. Jo Hyun started performing and even founded an academy to promote it, and soon attracted a lot of media attention around the country. In 2017, Hyun founded Didgevibe, the first didgeridoo & handpan studio in South Korea. Besides performing, he also dedicates much of his time promoting the culture of those instruments as an educator.
