Beginning students of Wesleyan's Korean Drumming and Creative Music Ensemble, directed by Visiting Assistant Professor of Music Jin Hi Kim, play new arrangements of samulnori repertoire, performed on two-headed drums (janggo), barrel drums (buk), hand gongs (kwenggari), and a suspended gong (jing). The group will play a variety of mesmerizing janggo rhythmic patterns, and also create new pieces, discovering the sounds that are possible through imaginative explorations on their instruments.
