Born in Taejon, Korea, Okkyung Lee moved to Boston in 1996, where she received degrees in film scoring and improvisation. A ubiquitous figure in the downtown scene since 2000, her playing is passionate and uncompromising. For her debut CD she has created a sensitive suite drawing inspiration from her Korean roots, the world of mystery and the world of love. Featuring many of the musicians she has grown close to in the past several years, Nihm is a brilliantly conceived collection of music blending composition and improvisation in surprising new ways.
