Our group performs samulnori, the genre of contemporary Korean percussion music. This genre was developed from thep'ungmul of traditional local percussion bands and now forms a significant part of the soundscape of today’s Korea. For this genre of music, performers use the four core percussion instruments of traditional local percussion bands: two gongs – the smallkkwaenggwari and the large ching, and two drums – the hourglass-shaped changgo and the barrel-shaped buk. We are open to beginners as well as all those with performance experience. We aim to have a weekly practice session, to provide SOAS students with the opportunity to learn this Korean drumming, and to give our regular concert at SOAS
