Korean Percussion at Maryland
Experience the vibrant beat of samulnori. This modern incarnation of traditional Korean folk music celebrates harvest time and provides a lively soundtrack to dancing. The ensemble is comprised of four types of percussion instruments—an hourglass drum, a barrel drum, a small gong and a large gong—each representing a natural element: rain, clouds, lightning and wind, respectively.
Under the direction of Sebastian Wang, this concert will be performed by the UMD Korean Percussion Ensemble and features appearances by members of the professional groups Washington Samulnori and New York Korean Traditional Marching Band.
