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.
Xabier Diaz & Adufeiras de Salitre
Xabier Diaz & Adufeiras de Salitre
Hailing from Galicia in Northwestern Spain, Xabier Diaz and Adufeiras de Salitre come together to create a powerful live show, filling the stage with 11 singers, percussion, violin, diatonic accordion, and the hurdy-gurdy—a stringed instrument that produces sound by a hand crank-turned, rosined wheel rubbing against the strings. A singer, composer, and researcher, Xabier Diaz has spent his career championing and performing Galicia’s rich musical folklore as part of award-winning bands Berrogüetto and Nova Galega de Danza. In 2016, he began his collaboration with Adufeiras de Salitre, a group comprised of 11 female singers and percussionists. Their combined voices take a leading role in the music, passionately pushing traditional rhythms and melodies through Galician peaks and valleys.
