Sam-go Mu -- “Tree Stand Drum Dance” or “Three Drum Dance”

The performers of Sam-go Mu are both drummers and dancers, combining rhythmic dexterity with acrobatic movement. The dance begins with a dramatic rolling of drumsticks around the ridges of the drum's circumference, gradually building to a crescendo. The elegant and gentle movements of the female dancers express the blessing and great joy from the earth. From the World's Art website: www.worldartswest.org/plm/guide/locator/korean.shtml
