Please join us in our first appearance of "Samulnori" on August 2nd in our amphitheatre at 2:30 pm - 3 pm.
Samulnori is a type of Korean percussion music and dance. The "samul" can be broken down into "4 objects" and "nori" means "to play". The four traditional Korean instruments used are: KKwaenggwari (small gong), Jing (larger gong), Janggu (an hour-glass shaped drum) and Buk (barrel drum similar to a bass drum).
Each of the instruments represents an element of nature:
Samulnori originates from farmer’s music (nong-ak), and includes not only music but dancing to celebrate harvest times.
Through exposure to nature, we hope to increase children’s empathy and understanding for conservation while having fun and meeting some new friends.
