2018 OPEN STAGE: SAMULNORI
Korean Cultural Center New York is proud to present 2018 Open Stage: Samulnori, celebrating the creation of one of the most popular Korean music genres performed on stage.
Since samulnori was established in 1978, it has sparked a renaissance in Korea’s music scene and gained worldwide acclaim. 2018 marks samulnori’s 40th anniversary as a new genre of performance art.
Samulnori is based on the core principle of harmony among man, heaven, and the earth. With each of the four key instruments representing an element of nature, their distinct sounds combine to create vibrant, unified music.
KCCNY is excited to introduce the depth and breadth of the beauty of samulnori to the US this year.
