"Ensemble Mik Nawooj is thirsty to change the game" (MTV), is "ambitious" (The New Yorker), and "breaks established boundaries between genres and styles" (SF Examiner). NPR praised it by saying "nobody has ever attempted anything like this on such a large scale, or with such sophistication".

Biography

Ensemble Mik Nawooj (EMN) performs the innovative music of composer/pianist JooWan Kim, who blends classical, hip-hop, film music, and pop into a unique musical hybrid. Live performance footage can be found here.

Since its first public performance in spring of 2005, EMN has generated both shock and praise from audiences and critics alike for its uncompromising blend of rap and classical. Ensemble Mik Nawooj is the first and the only band that successfully merged pop with traditional Western European music without losing the integrity of either genre.
