Global Musics Concert with Red Sun/SamulNori

Kim Duk Soo
Schoenberg Hall

Red Sun/SamulNori, a Korean percussion/jazz collaboration that began in 1987, presents a concert featuring master percussionist Kim Duk Soo from South Korea (founder of the samul nori genre), renowned jazz saxophonist Wolfgang Puschnig from Austria, and legendary bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma of Philadelphia, as well as percussionists from SamulNori Hanullim. Red Sun/SamulNori has released several recordings and the ensemble has performed in Europe and in Asia. The “Global Musics and Musical Communities” concert marks their debut performance in the United States. Program subject to change.

The Red Sun/SamulNori concert, co-sponsored by the UCLA Center for Korean Studies, is part of a two-day conference, "Global Musics and Musical Communities." Visit the UCLA Center for Musical Humanities website for more information, including a schedule of events and their locations.

With support from the Center for Musical Humanities and the Department of Ethnomusicology, this interdisciplinary event will be held on May 10-11, 2019 at UCLA. “Global Musics” includes an academic conference, an evening musical performance, and music workshops. The event places music/performance analysis in conversation with global music genres. The objective of the conference is to bring together a community of scholars, music pedagogues, and musicians to explore how and why specific musical genres travel outside their countries of origin and lead to the formation of new musical communities.

Register in advance for this event. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the event.
