Let me tell you a story inside the theater. As i said before the performance present a traditional percussion and string instruments, as well as wishing song of success, love and health.
the dulsori team, a performer of Worldbeat VINARI
The opening was started by a beautiful screen with beautiful music, and then they start with introductions plus an amazing drums performance.
The first song was“Sabaha” it was a full traditional percussions and string instrument played together, it was teaching us how to be a good person by complement people like saying “you did a good job” (caranda).
Second song they performed a song title “Flowery love”, the meaning of the song is about looking for true love and you will find it someday. It was duet of kayagem with flute , it was amazing and my favorite performances since i feel so peaceful and I can fill love, plus there was a beautiful background during the song was played.
they all played instruments well, sing well and also dance well
The third song was “Driving beat”, it was a duet drum. The meaning is sound of janggu mix it to show sound from heaven. The next song was “Hope for better tomorrow”, A song about dream for future and never give up to reach your success. They teach us to say “Eulasigo –cutaa“.
The next song was a latin song, it was a duet performance between a flute and a drums, i really love this performance as well. i guess the flute was the best performer of today. After that there was a Five drum dance, it was a Dramatic ensemble of big drums and small drums played by 5 people.

The beat song was performed by a big drum and small hand ensemble drum played by 5 people. The climax of the performance to day was a song title “Ah ha yap”, this song was really made all of the audience to enjoy the song! i really love how they request the audience to involve to this performance by request audience to scream uh gi ya!
Power beat toward the grand final and the festival fever was the last song, it was a theme music of dulsori to convey to the audience about the “excitement of life on festival”.
it’s me take a picture with the performer
During the show they choose the best audience by requesting them to drink with love shoot a special VINARI wine, and they also give away some present to bring home. I got one of the goodie bags! Yeyyyyyy! 🙂
the VINARI Give away GIFT! 🙂
After the shows they come out of the studio and still played the instrument and all of us dancing outside the lobby, after the shows we are so excited to take a picture with the performer.
I guess this shows are recommended for all foreigners since they truly perform the beauty Korean traditional musics and song. You won’t get difficulties in understanding the shows since they provided translations in several language such as Korean, English, Chinese and Japanese. All the performer also speak English and some Japanese. So if you come to Korea why don’t you visit this performance? Its really awesome performance! 🙂
