Leenalchi are an alternative pop band that sings verses from the traditional tale, Sugungga. The story tells of a dragon king from the Southern Sea, a softshell turtle and a wily rabbit.
The seven-piece band comprises four traditional vocalists delivering musical storytelling through solos, choir, rapping and dance. The story’s background beats and bass draw inspiration from 80’s new wave while the performers build excitement by destroying and rearranging traditional elements.
Recently, a promotional video of the Korea Tourism Organization, which was joined by LEENALCHI and Ambiguous Dance Company, has become a hot topic and has been loved by the public.
