Hey, sorry it has taken us so long to post. A lot of things have happened and it seems it will be a bit overwhelming to catch up. Ahh, such is a blogger’s life, I guess.

Well, a few weeks ago we headed down to the Han river to listen to the 2007 Seoul Drum Festival. It was quite an adventure to wander throughout an unfamiliar part of Seoul and to join hundreds of other interested spectators enjoying drinks and the awesome rhythms of the different performers. The three day festival featured drum performers from different countries like the US, England, China, Japan, Korea, and others. Here is some of what we heard: (the first performers are a Korean group, the second, a group from China)

There was a good mixture of traditional performances and more modern rhythms. It was an awesome experience.
