Drop-In Korean Drumming Class

$5 – $10

Make music with us and explore traditions of Korean folk percussion!

Come experience the joy and energy of pungmul! 

Pungmul (풍물) is a Korean tradition of folk percussion that includes drumming, dancing, and singing. Rooted in farming culture, pungmul was originally performed as part of farm work, at harvest festivals, and to accompany shamanistic rituals or mask dances.

Participants will get an introduction to four primary instruments and how they are played together:

Kkwaenggari (꽹과리), a small, handheld gong representing thunder
Jing (징), a large gong representing the wind
Janggu (장구), an hourglass shaped drum representing the rain
Buk (북), a barrel drum representing the clouds
