Celebrate Lunar New Year with Brooklyn Public Library’s Heritage Ambassador, Vong Pak.  Listen as Vong Pak interviews Chi-Chung Kim, a Pungmul player (Korean percussive music) who launched Korean folklore on the East Coast. Why does he still play Pungmul after 70 years? What does Korean music mean to him? Join us for this virtual program.

브루클린 공립 도서관의 문화유산 홍보대사인 박봉 씨와 함께 설날을 기념하세요.  박봉 씨가 동해안에서 한국 민속학을 시작한 풍물 연주자(한국 타악곡) 김치충 씨와 진행하는 인터뷰를 들어 보세요. 그는 왜 70년이 지났는데도 여전히 풍물을 연주할까요? 그에게 한국 음악은 어떤 의미일까요? 이 가상 프로그램에 참여하세요.

This pre-recorded program will air at 6:00pm on the BPL Facebook page
