Sogochum (Small Hand-Drum Dance)

Sogochum is a dance with ‘Sogo’, a small hand drum, about 15 inches in diameter. The dancers hold the hand drum on one hand and beat the drumhead with a stick. This dance has its roots in the peasants’ percussion band, ‘Nongak’, which consists of various percussion instruments, such as ‘Sogo’, ‘Janggo’ (hourglass drum), ‘Puk’ (medium size drum), ‘Jing’ (medium gong), and ‘Gwaenggwari’ (small gong). In ‘Nongak’, the ‘Sogo’ players are usually positioned at the head of the line of musicians and they perform ‘Chumsawi’, expressive traditional dance movements that evoke ‘Heung’ (excitement) and ‘Meot’ (style). This is a stage version of this jubilant traditional dance.



Buchae-ch’um (Fan Dance)

This group dance is one of the most popular traditional folk dances of Korea. It is a relatively modern dance developed in the 18th century using the fan, a prop used in shaman rituals. Apart from their decorative and everyday functions, fans are thought to expel evil and bring prosperity. The grace of the music, along with the colorful costumes and shifting geometrical designs, leads the audience to believe that they are surrounded by a garden of flowers.



Janggu Ch’um (Hour-glass Drum Dance)

‘Janggu Ch’um’ is a very energetic and rhythmic dance where the performers beat drums strapped to their bodies. The drums, called ‘Janggu’ are double-headed and shaped like hourglasses. The ‘Janggu’ is played by striking the leather with the palm on the left side and with a bamboo drumstick on the right. In an artful fusion of music and choreography, the dancers dance and spin around playing vibrant yet graceful rhythms.
