Spreading the noble message of global peace and cultural understanding through music and poetic narrations, renowned social workers and gifted music maestros Keiko Koma, a direct descendant of the ancient kingdom of Koguryo, Korea and Idaki Shin will finally bring their initiative — Legends of Koguryo Rediscovered to the Capital. And they draw their poetic inspiration from the Ramayana.

Aimed at supporting community development efforts by the Joy James Educational Trust, which works in the field of poverty upliftment and child development, the concert will see the two royal artists perform live in India for the first time. “I want every listener to realise the great richness and potential within themselves and open up their’s hearts to transform our world to a truly human one,” says Koma, in her calm demeanour.

Known to be gifted with the special vision to witness the world of souls and divinity, Koma, describes this as, “Kings of Koguryo were Shaman kings were capable of receiving heavenly messages and remained truthful to them throughout their life. They have never questioned if such message would be possible or not and simply made sure that they followed everything that came to them as a divine message.”

A trained pianist, Shin, thinks that the instrument best reflects his internal self. “When I was studying human nature in the early years of my life, one day by mere chance, I came across the sound of a piano and found it to be best resonating of my internal self. Since then the piano has become a companion for me, through which I can create artistic expressions that can provide special divine energies to people,” he says.

Over the years, this concert has been staged 106 times around the world, including Azerbaijan, Iran, Japan, Armenia, Lebanon, Gerogia, Syria, Russia among others.
