Mina Cho grew up in Korea playing classical music and American gospel. A chance meeting with a Berklee grad sent her to Boston where she studied South American folk music.

In this interview, Cho discusses her uncommon background; her studies with composer Leo Blanco; and why gospel music is so important to her. Learn more at www.minachomusic.com/.
