- n. A small brass gong used in Korean folk music
One student will perform a traditional Hwagwanmu dance, and Korean children will play Korean music with instruments such as kkwaenggwari, jing, buk and jangu.
Each of the four instruments represents a different weather condition: the janggu represents rain, the kkwaenggwari thunder, the jing the sounds of the wind, and the buk clouds.
The idea of yin and yang is also reflected in these instruments: the buk and janggu (leather) represent the sounds of the earth, while the jing and kkwaenggwari (metal) represent sounds of the heavens.
The five artists each play haegeum; gayageum; piri and taepyeongso; daegeum and sogeum; and janggu, kkwaenggwari and percussions, while the director and producer manage the band's other affairs.
