Eoullim Band - Samulnori Workshop

Eeoullim Band (hereafter, "Eeoullim") is a community established on May 5th, 2015, aiming to play Samulnori with company colleagues and teach it. Their aim is not only playing and teaching Samulnori, but also spreading Korean culture. Like the name "Eoullim", they pursue not only musical harmony but also essential values of life. Every Tuesday evening, they practice Samulnori at the Korean Cultural Center.

Samulnori Class was held at the Korean Cultural Center in Poland. Though they are not professional musicians, they carefully explained Korean music Samulnori and history of each instrument to the local Polish people and even instructed them in playing the instruments. Lastly, the event ended when the public finished playing the music learned from the "teachers". It was too short a time to master in one day, but all participants are expecting the upcoming events.
