Global Pungmul Institute presents Drumming and Dance featuring Chansoo Lee
The Global Pungmul Institute (GPI) is a Chicago-based, community-based, cultural and educational organization, dedicated to promoting traditional Korean cultural and performing arts. The group will present their modern interpretation of traditional pungmul rhythms, and will showcase Artist in Residence, Chansoo Lee singing Pinari, (wish song of good fortune), with the other professional drummers of GPI. The driving beat of pungmul provides an invigorating pulse. The dynamic motions facilitate a continuous loop of energy as the group presents pieces such as Samul-nori, sangmo (ribboned hat dance), or pieces using the janggu (hourglass shaped drum).

Traditional cultural and performing arts are dynamic components of contemporary life and are essential to both local communities and global networks of societies. Global Pungmul Institute engages with multiple communities across the globe to develop and promote traditional Korean cultural and performing arts and to nurture leadership among youth so as to increase cross-cultural understanding and improve the human condition.
