Tradition and spectacle come together in Dulsori, the South Korean percussion sensation that comes to Chicago on its first US tour.
Through song and dance, along with the powerful sound of the drum, this interactive performance will create a kaleidoscope of color and sound, alive with a rich and vibrant energy.
"Dulsori (literally ‘ heartbeat of the land ’ ), formed in 1984, primarily aims to rekindle the spirit of ancient festival sharing the inner-energy through the art form that can enrich our life. Festival is the place where everyone’s energy mingles together creating a sense of pleasure in a collective manner.
Our performances and interactive programs attempt to build harmony and unity of community among the audience members and performers."
