Master Korean Percussionist
The Interference Series is pleased to welcome master percussionist Dong-Won Kim as a featured artist alongside local artists. Over the last three decades, Dong-Won has studied various forms of traditional Korean percussion music including farmer’s drumming and dance, shamanic music, and Pansori accompaniment. He has performed throughout Europe, the U.S.A., Canada, Japan, and many other countries.
He is a member of “The Silk Road Ensemble,” led by cellist Yo-Yo Ma, who describes Dong-Won as follows: “Every pore of his being is devoted to expressing the deep emotion he feels for traditional Korean culture. Its philosophy, physicality and spirituality are organic to Dong-Won’s art. It is an inspiration to make music with him.” Dong-Won has helped to forge new possibilities for Korean music, performing with many international musicians steeped in idioms including western classical music, jazz, and creative improvised music.
The show will take place on Wednesday, Novmember 20, 2019, doors are at 7:00pm and the show will start at 7:30pm. Tickets are $12 general and $5 for students.
