Chan Centre Connects

Hybridity and the Boundaries of Tradition & Korean Drumming Workshop

Thu January 21 2010 7pm
Royal Bank Cinema

Presented by the Chan Centre, the UBC School of Music Graduate Colloquium Series and the Korea Foundation

 

In this presentation Dr. Nathan Hesselink and Mr. Kim Dong-Won will discuss the history and meanings of musical hybridity in the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Beginning with a general discussion of cross-cultural encounter interpreted through the lens of musical fusions, they will then elaborate on the specific circumstances that led to a flourishing of such activity in modern South Korea, particularly collaborations between Korean traditional percussionists and Western jazz musicians.

The event will conclude with a hands-on Korean drumming workshop, open to participants of all ages and skill levels.
