Festival for 6 percussion players
This piece is inspired from the Korean traditional festival "DANO"
Dano festival was a shamanistic ritual worshipping the sky deity in celebration of the end of sowing season. According to historical texts, the people of Mahan confederacy celebrated day and night with dancing and singing after the sowing season in May.
Like this traditional festival shows the singing, rhythm, outing games and so on.
So I describe that singing, dancing, rhythm be played by 6 percussion players. And I also describe about their happiness, sadness, composure and the landscape of festival.
