Lee Ru-ma (Korean: ì´ë£¨ë§ˆ), better known by his stage name Yiruma (Korean: ì´ë£¨ë§ˆ), is a South Korean pianist and composer. Yiruma frequently performs at sold-out concerts in Asia, Europe and North America. Yiruma's musical style primarily focuses on new-age, and is said to be similar to the contemporary classical sheet music in film scores or television dramas. Because his music is popular among many listeners who are not familiar with classical music, the solo piano instrumentation and tendency toward "movements" often leads to labels like "new classical", "pop classical" or "contemporary classical". Pattern and repetition feature prominently, however, making the structure more like popular pieces or movie themes than traditional solo piano compositions.
