Applauded by the Calgary Herald as “…talented, sensitive…brilliant,” Jiji is an adventurous artist on both acoustic and electric guitar, playing an extensive range of music from traditional and contemporary classical music to free improvisation.

Born in Seoul, South Korea, Jiji (Jiyeon Kim) began playing classical guitar at the age of nine, and was accepted to the Korea National University of Arts at age fourteen. She has performed with the Kansas City Symphony and Tanglewood Chamber Orchestra, and in recitals at Carnegie Hall, Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Her performances have been featured on PBS, NPR’s From The Top and Hong Kong’s RTHK. She attended the Cleveland Institute of Music for two years, where she studied with Jason Vieaux, and was accepted at the Curtis Institute of Music in 2011 as one of the first two guitarists in Curtis’ distinguished history. She earned her Master of Music degree from the Yale School of Music. Currently based in Brooklyn, NY, she enjoys cooking in her spare time and creating weird sounds on Ableton.
