Yiruma: River Flows in You

Lee Ru-ma, stage name Yiruma (meaning: “I reach you”, “I steal into your heart”) was born in South Korea, but he went to live in Britain as a child after starting to play piano at the age of 5 and proving to be an extraordinary talent.

He studied music at King’s College, London, and published his first record with the support of DECCA Records. During the 2000’s, he toured in Europe as well, he was the first Korean pianist to play at a Midem Gala in Cannes, in 2002. His best-known compositions are perhaps those entitled River Flows in You and Kiss The Rain.
