Dabin Ryu

Dabin Ryu is a pianist from South Korea who started to play at the age of four. Her first exposure to music was classical piano, which she studied for eight years. In middle school, she began studying other contemporary styles and chose to focus on jazz. After intense study, she was accepted on a full scholarship to Gimcheon Art High School.

At the age of 19, she started her own group and began to compose and play her own music. She then realized that she wanted to continue composing.
