The Korean Percussion Ensemble explores the genres of samulnori and p’ungmul. Korean samulnori features the dynamic interplay of four percussion instruments known as changgo (hourglass drum), puk (barrel drum), ching (large gong), and kkwaenggwari (small gong). Samulnori draws its roots and rhythms from a much older musical tradition known as p’ungmul, which was associated with village rituals and agrarian life in Korea for many centuries. Much like Japanese taiko, Korean samulnori is now performed all around the world by professional and amateur ensembles.
