Enjoy the sights and sounds of Korea as we welcome the Lunar New Year with the drummers of Washington Samulnori. 

This traditional Korean percussion troupe is dedicated to performing and preserving Samulnori (in Korean, sa and mul mean “four things” and nori means “to play”).  Its high-energy performance features four different percussive instruments: changgo (hourglass-shaped drum), buk (barrel drum), jing (large gong), and kkwaenggwari (small gong).
