Alexis and I attended a traditional Korean music recital. It was our favorite cultural experience to date. The musical instruments included a Janggu (double-headed hourglass-shaped drum), a Daegeum (large bamboo flute), and centered around women playing Gayageums (multi-stringed zithers). *[The word zither is a German rendering of the Latin word cithara, from which the modern word guitar is also derived.] The ladies wore Hanbok, and their vocals accompanied the play of the Gayageum.
Below are five photos, followed by two short videos. It was a packed house, and the seating was on the floor. So, I did my best. Enjoy!
