Rhythms of Korea: Percussion Workshop Series

October 19 – November 23, 2015
6 – 7PM

Try your hand at the rhythms of Korea in this new drumming series! Participants explore Korea’s percussion heritage through six sessions of hands-on instruction guided by percussionist Brian Chae.

This workshop series focuses on samulnori, a type of pungmul or folk music. Samulnori means “four objects play.” The four objects are: kwaenggwari (small gong), jing (large gong), janggu (hourglass-shaped drum) and buk (barrel drum). Samulnori comes in many forms and varies depending on the region in which it is practiced. Participants will enjoy playing the janggu and buk drums!

Join us on Monday nights to experiment with the traditional beats of Korea!

All are welcomed to participate in this workshop series. Drumming or dance experience is not required. All ages, body types, abilities, and genders are encouraged to join!

12-Hour Workshop Registration

Members & Students: $150

Non-members: $180

Light refreshments and snacks are provided at each session.

Supported by the New York State Council on the Arts.
