    SamulNori creates a spectacular display of drumming. Founded and led by Kim Duk-Soo, the group’s leader and master of the changgo (hourglass-shaped drum), SamulNori’s dancing percussionists play music based on 5,000-year-old Korean shamanist traditions. In several numbers the musicians also wear hats topped with long plumes or streamers that produce swirling patterns of color as they move from ceremonial walks to great leaps and dizzying spins.

    Free lecture/demonstration: Saturday, November 12, 1–2:30pm at Harvard University, Holden Chapel, Harvard Yard, Cambridge. Presented by Learning From Performers (Office for the Arts at Harvard) in association with World Music/CRASHarts.

    Funded in part by the Expeditions program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.
