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.

Attendence at all sessions is not mandatory but STRONGLY encouraged. SIGN UP BEFORE EACH SESSION BY EMAIL so we can ensure that everyone will have a drum.
