Notes & Reviews:

This Korean group was founded in 1993 by Kang Ku Lee and since then has performed numerous concerts with innovative and distinctive programs in a variety of unusual settings. Their work over the years has both entertained and educated audiences of all sizes and backgrounds. Of course, percussion music itself comes in many different forms: nationalistic, experimental and works composed in "Western" style by many contemporary composers. On this disc, the group simply wants to entertain, with a delightful hodgepodge of "classic" novelty numbers, transcriptions of jazz and popular tunes, and a few offbeat selections.
