I feel truly grateful to be able to share with you the very final result of the GreeKorea project. Here is the documentary, which is our story. Hope this resonates with your hearts in a very special way.
"Everyone’s story resembles another’s, and it is our hope that this music can inspire you to think about how to live together even when we face conflicts and differences. ... Life is improvisational, replete with unanticipated and astonishing events. We improvise to find creative solutions in the moment. We keep trying."
(from the GreeKorea "Greeting the Moon" album booklet)

"그리스와 코리아가 만나 ‘그릭코리아’라는 또 다른 존재가 되었다. ‘그릭코리아’가 되어 함께 달맞이 가는 풍경을 그린 그들의 음악 이야기에 삶의 고단함이 녹아있고, 이를 웃음으로 전환시키는 재치와 멋이 깃들어 있으며, 끊임없이 탐구하고 창작하는 국악재즈소사이어티 멤버들의 열정이 담겨져 있다. ‘그릭코리아’ 달맞이 가다… 한 편의 영화를 본 듯한 감동과 여운의 파동이 오랫동안 느껴지는 앨범이다."

GREEKOREA is an imaginary existence but surely present in our hearts. As a new artistic entity named GREEKOREA, we greeted the moon together from Greece, Korea, and America by wholeheartedly playing the music.
Please enjoy "달맞이 Dalmaji" ("Night of the Full Moon") from the recent album of the Gugak Jazz Society, GREEKOREA "Greeting the Moon.”
