    by WildFilmsIndia

    Ms Park Eun Ha shows Samulnori techniques at the workshop in the Korean Cultural Centre in Lajpat Nagar, Delhi.

    Samul nori is a genre of traditional percussion music originating in Korea. The word samul means "four objects" and nori means "play"; samul nori is performed with four traditional Korean musical instruments:

    Kkwaenggwari (a small gong)
    Jing (a larger gong)
    Janggu (an hourglass-shaped drum)
    Buk (a barrel drum similar to the bass drum)

    The traditional Korean instruments are called pungmul.

    According to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Korean Cultural Center located on Ring Road, New Delhi, is four stories tall, covering 1,826 square meters of floor space. The center has an AV room where visitors can watch video materials and an exhibition hall, and plans to offer Korean language, taekwondo, and traditional music classes.

    This is the first Korean Cultural Center to be opened in South Asia and the 24th in the world since the first centers opened in Tokyo and New York in 1979.
