Showcase of Korean traditional drumming and movement to be staged in December
     Korea's TAGO Group and co-producer AtoBIZ Limited will stage "TAGO: Korean Drum" in December.
     "TAGO: Korean Drum" comprises acclaimed young drummers who specialise in different Korean percussion instruments, ranging from joong-go (gigantic drums) and jang-go (mini drums) to yul-go (a new style by TAGO) and other traditional drums. The young musicians combine the percussion with dynamic movements to create a new style that energises the traditional music.
     TAGO Group, established in 2005, is a Korean traditional music group formed by a group of young artists. At the time of TAGO's formation, traditional drumming or gugak was not popular among Korean youngsters, and the group was founded with the aim of developing the art form in a way that would gain youngsters' attention. TAGO has toured in Germany, Spain, the United States, Australia and South Africa, and has also performed twice at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
     In partnership with AtoBIZ Limited, the arts group participated in filming the promotional video for the PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games 2018.
     Details of the performances are as follows:
December 28 (Friday), 7.30pm
Auditorium, Tuen Mun Town Hall
