The Korean Cultural Centre UK is proud to present a concert of Traditional Korean Music on Friday 12 June 2015. The five outstanding performers that make up the Daegu Hyangje Julpungyu Preservation Group will come to the KCCUK to perform ‘Julpungnyu’.

Julpungyu, is a regional wind and string ensemble suite also known simply as pungnyu or more completely as hyangjje jul pungnyu, link sanjo and sinawi. Jul pungnyu also forms a link between performance and scholarship, since it is the focus of considerable academic research as many old scores have survived to this day.

Julpungnyu is based on 5 traditional Korean Music instruments, namely Goeomungo (six-string wither), gayageum,(12 string wither), yanggeum(played by striking the strings with a bamboo stick), and Danso(a short bamboo flute). From these instruments, the Julpungnyu is mainly based around the Geomungo. This Concert will provide visitors with the wonderful opportunity to discover the delights of traditional Korean music.
