Featuring Kim Duk-Soo, Founder & Artistic Director
This Chan Centre debut promises an engrossing evening of driving, syncopated sound and animated theatricality. Hailing from South Korea, the kinetic ensemble of master drummers and dancers presents a visually stunning cultural expression in the tradition of past Chan Centre favourites Çudamani and the Whirling Dervishes of Turkey.
SamulNori’s unique style of percussion originated in farmers’ bands, a folk tradition central to Korean heritage. Over a remarkable 35 years, the ensemble has built upon this tradition, developing their individual sound into the powerful music and pageantry they share around the globe.
A feast for the senses that should not be missed!
“An experience that matches unsparing energy and technical mastery with a strong sense of spirituality.” - The Los Angeles Times
