Baraji, while preserving the folkloric forms of both Korean music and dance, is known for their exceptional improvisation and spontaneity of their performances.

Baraji is a pure Korean word that refers to the heartfelt care given to a person through unconditional support. In traditional music, baraji also refers to the impromptu singing by accompanists that adds harmony to the lead vocal and enhances the colors of the music. The key characteristics of baraji is epitomized in Jindo Ssitgim Gut, a traditional shamanistic purging ritual for the dead and a prayer for peaceful rest through song and dance.

Baraji music group was born to pay homage to and to share the beauty of baraji with the world through music. It strives to identify powerful elements for interaction with audiences in various genres of traditional music including vocal, percussion, instrumental, and theatrical music. By polishing and reconstructing these elements, Baraji hopes to contribute to making the world a better, more musical place to live in through its performances.
