Since ED Byoung Kim and Artist-in-Residence Suwan Choi attended the world music symposium held at Northern Illinois University in April of 2015, GPI has been building a good partnership with NIU.
GPI was invited to 2016 World Music Festival at NIU and performed a samulnori on Sunday, April 10. We would like to extend a special thank to Dr. Jui-Ching Wang for inviting us to such a great concert. It was an exciting and meaningful experience, especially for SoriBeat youth members.
Here is a video link of the samul-nori performance.
