A special guest artist, Hyun Duck Oh is seen here at the Dancing Fingers Spring Concert Thursday evening, April 27 at Calvary Temple AOG in Lepuapua.

Oh was playing a traditional Korean instrument, the gayageum or kayagum.

Wikipedia says, according to the Samguksagi (1145), a history of the Three Kingdoms of Korea, the gayageum is supposed to have been developed around the 6th century by King Gasil after he observed an old Chinese instrument, a guzheng. He then ordered a musician named Wu Ruk to compose music that could be played on the instrument.
