Hong Sung Hyun's Chobeolbi
Hong Sung Hyun's Chobeolbi
Korean drummer Hong Sung Hyun presents Chobeolbi, a collaborative project that showcases his work across various traditional Korean percussion instruments. Chobeolbi (초벌비) translates to ‘rough rain,’ a potent metaphor for a project that aims to “fill the parched hearts of people living in the rough modern world.” Hyun’s main instrument is the janggu, a traditional drum identified by its hourglass shaped body and differently pitched drum heads. Historians have traced the origins of this drum to the reign of Korean King Munjon of Goryeo (1047-1084), where it was used as a field instrument. Through Chobeolbi, Hyun pushes Korean percussion away from its traditional supporting role and transforms it into the center point for melody and story.
LADAMA
LADAMA
LADAMA is Mafer Bandola from Venezuela (bandola llanera), Lara Klaus from Brazil (percussion, drums), Daniela Serna from Colombia (percussion) and Sara Lucas (voice, guitar).

Together they combine the rhythms and traditional instrumentation of frevo and maracatu from Pernambuco, Brazil; joropo songs from the high plains of Venezuela; cumbia, gaita and champeta from the Colombian coast and contemporary strains of American pop and jazz.

Their performances include original compositions and traditional songs sung in Spanish, Portuguese and English combining disparate elements into a cohesive whole. The result is a sonic experience through which we can view our future as a world that communicates across continents and cultures, with sound and story.
Local Roots Festival - Somali Museum Dance Troupe
Before each night of the Global Roots Festival, don’t miss the Local Roots Festival presented by Pizza Lucé from 6-7:30pm on The Cedar's Plaza. Monday's Local Roots performers are the Somali Museum Dance Troupe, showcasing traditional Somali dance from the past and present. Come early for free pizza from Pizza Lucé.
