Several Oasis Cafe friends featured in a recent CJ/Berklee tribute video

This year, the Korean rock pioneer Joon Hyun Shin, the “God Father” of Korean Rock, is receiving the honorary Doctor's degree from the Berklee College of Music. For the occasion, several young Korean Berklee alumni gathered and recorded a tribute rendition of one of his best known songs "Beautiful Rivers and Mountains".

There, we are excited to spot several Oasis Cafe alumni, too. Kyumin Shim and Yu Rang Han on pianos, Sung Huh on vocal, and Ki Woong Choi on drums. We really appreciate that these creme de la crop of young Korean musicians have graced our stage over the years!
