Korean Drumming and Creative Music

Friday, April 29, 2022 at 3:00pm
World Music Hall

FREE! Masks required.

Beginning and advanced students of the Korean Drumming and Creative Music Ensemble, directed by Adjunct Assistant Professor Jin Hi Kim, play new arrangements of samulnori (percussion quartet) repertoire, performed on two-headed drums (janggu), barrel drums (buk), hand gong (kwenggari), and a suspended gong (jing). The ensemble plays a variety of mesmerizing janggu rhythmic patterns, and also creates new pieces, discovering the sounds that are possible through imaginative explorations on their instruments. Advanced students perform solo janggu and improvise vigorous drumming on the suspended barrel drum.
