Video Title:
Dong-wan Kim demonstrates the Korean changgo
Description:
Dong-wan Kim, of the Silk Road Ensemble, is a master of the traditional Korean changgo. The changgo is an hourglass drum that is the most widely played of all Korean instruments. This drum produces two sounds--one low, one high--symbolizing the harmonious conjoining of male and female aspects. In folk performances called p'ungmul nori, a thin bamboo stick is used to strike the chaepyon (the right side), while the gungpyon (left side) is struck with a round-headed wooden mallet. Some rhythms in p'ungmul nori call for the performer to cross hands and use the wooden mallet to hit the opposite side. [Catalog No. - CFV10030; Copyright - 2006 Smithsonian Institution]
