Samulnori is a Korean percussive art genre, originating from Nong’ak (farmers’ band music) and comprises four instruments: janggo (hour-glass drum), buk (barrel drum), jing (big gong) and kkwaengwari (small gong).

Founded in 1978, SamulNori, later re-named SamulNori Hanullim, led by Artistic Director and master percussionist Kim Duk Soo not only sparked a renaissance in Korean traditional performing arts but has also expanded its musical boundaries from the traditional to the contemporary, performing on over 5,500 stages around the world.
This event is jointly hosted by Robinson College and Clare Hall.

Auditorium, Robinson College, Grange Road
