Noreum Machi traces its roots to Korean farmers’ ensembles, groups that gathered together to celebrate the harvest with music, song, and dance. The ensemble generally consists of four main instruments, each one representing an element of nature: an hourglass-shaped drum (janggu) for rain; a barrel drum (buk) for clouds; a large gong (jing) for wind; and a small gong (kkwaenggwari) for thunder.
Noreum Machi features vocalist, Juhong Kim and percussionists Hyunju Oh, Howon Lee, Taeho Kim, and Youngjun Kim.
Noreum Machi’s US tour is made possible by the Korea Foundation
