4 stars Empires have to fall for single stones to be piled up again.

While most Progressive music artists are turning dangerously close to white mainstream Pop-Rock music lyricism, this South Koreaīs band Jambinai: ONDA (2019), 8 track release, sets a distinctive tone and travels a road far less traveled, therefore for the listener it is full of unexpected surprises and this band sure makes these surprises exciting.

To set its geographic coordinates seems essential to understand why and how this albumīs sound stands outside the quiet cliched borderlines of modern Prog music and offers in retribution an unmistakable Asian flavor which seems to uncover a close but not unexpected kinship of unwritten musical agreements between Korean folk music canons and western Progressive musicīs Post Rock/Math Rockīs ones and even more the RiOīs ones.

As a matter of speaking but it would turn out inaccurate not to mention that its virtues go far way beyond this mixture of musical languages and instruments, or the Folk music turned into a Rock music exotic export product syndrome.

Ondaīs creative compositions are enticing by their own. The diversity of moods, musical ideas and craftmanship all add up for a thrilling 4 stars ride of an album, and yes people it rocks!
