My name is Dami, I'm a music student at SOAS and I'm trying to raise enough money to put on a korean music event at soas with the korean music ensemble, Buleschul.
I am currently major in Music performance where I am highly invoved in promoting Korean traditional music by running the korean music school, presenting a radio program through soas radio called gugak sounds and reserching upcoming and new korean traditional musicians
Bulsechul are an ensemble of eight korean musicians playing seven traditional instruments - (gayageum, geomungo, daegeum, piri, haegeum, ajeng, janggu) and guitar. The ensemble create their music based on Korean traditional music such as Shamanistic music, sinawi and sanjo.
Their music is acclaimed for emphasising the beauty of Korean traditional music based on traditional musical instruments and popularising Korean music internationally.
All of the members of Bulsechul are graduated of the prestigious Korean National University of the Arts.
SOAS MUSIC STUDENTS WILL BENEFIT FROM WORKSHOPS WITH BULSECHUL AND THE EVENT WILL CELEBRATE AND PROMOTE KOREAN MUSIC, HISTORY and culture!
I'm also part of the SOAS Korean drumming society and host a radio show on Korean music (one of my big passions) called Gugak Sounds on SOAS Radio. Bulsechul's performance will be part of a series of events I hope to put on to celebrate and promote Korean music, history and culture.
WHAT WILL YOUR DONATIONS BE USED For?
- Travel costs for the band
- Event logistics
- Promotion of events and workshop
This project is supported the SOAS music department and SOAS Professor of Music, Keith Howard. Any remaining funds will be donated to the SOAS music studies department to buy new instruments for students :)
I need your help to make this possible - THANK YOU!
