An assortment of Korean drums, but, center stage is what’s called the “Jang Gu” (장구). This is what I think of when Korean music is mentioned. Oh, and what they pass for cymbals, or a Kkwaenggwari. What looks like a steep-sided soup bowl entirely made of brass. Well played it’s good. When it’s not, descent can be heard for miles around. But, back to the Korean drum band, they were entertaining.

Fun, at the end

Lunar new year is signified with fireworks, and dragon dancers. Evidently the evil spirits of the old year are scared away by the loud, loud noise of the fireworks. Red, meaning and prosperity, coincidentally is the same colour as the fireworks. Often, there is strong community involvement.
