Get to know the members of Black Swan: K-pop’s first foreign group

The song “Karma” by Black Swan has been a consistent hit around the world. Black Swan is famous for being the only K-pop girl group with no Korean members.
The multinational K-pop girl group Black Swan was formed with the exception of Fatu, who was selected through individual auditions. The remaining members, Gabi, Sriya, and Anvi, were selected through the Signatures Project, a global online audition program created by DRMusic during their Korana days. These members hail from the United States, Brazil, and India, which are the main markets for K-pop outside of China, Japan, and Southeast Asia.

DR Music: Black Swan’s agency

Founded in 1989, DR Music was initially an underground talent agency for rock and ballad singers. One of their earliest artists was the first generation idol girl group BabyBox. After several unsuccessful attempts to create a new group, DR Music formed multinational K-pop girl group Black Swan in 2020. With our new multinational expatriate members, we plan to continue to find talent from abroad.
