Come learn the ancient traditional Korean art form of Pungmul! Involving drumming, dancing, and singing, pungmul is at least several hundreds years old and was performed during harvest time and new year's, as well as during ordinary farming routines. More recently, pungmul has been present in a wide variety of situations, from political protests to rap songs fusing western and Korean culture.
No experience is necessary and people from all cultural backgrounds are welcomed.
Attendence at all sessions is not mandatory but encouraged. Different rhythms and skills will be taught at each session. The sessions may culminate in a workshop and/or group retreat (details TBA).
This event is hosted by Oori, MIT's Pungmul Pae (Group).
