Asian cultural performances on show this Sunday

***********************************************



A free outdoor programme, "Asia Ethnic Cultural Performances", will be held on Sunday (October 19) from 2pm to 4.30pm at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza.

The event will showcase traditional Japanese dance and music, Japanese drum performances, Korean music and Taekwondo, and Chinese percussion.

"Asia Ethnic Cultural Performances" will show the uniqueness and exotic characters of the ethnic groups of different Asian countries. It will also provide free entertainment and introduce ethnic cultures to the general public. Admission is free.

Thirty students from the Hong Kong Japanese International School will perform four pieces of Taiko: Japanese barrel drums played with sticks, namely "Wish", "Spring", "Summer, Autumn, Winter" and "Wave". Japanese associations, the Hogaku Dokokai group and Wakayagi-Ryu "Ko-No-Kai", will present traditional Japanese music and dance.

The performances will also feature Korean traditional music, Samul Nori, and martial art Taekwondo by the Korean Residents Association. Samul Nori is played by four traditional Korean percussion instruments, Jang-gu, Buk, Ching and Kkwaenggwari. It is a unique art, which brings out the Korean spirit of mirth and joy.

Apart from the above performances, audiences may also enjoy Chinese percussion music by the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra.

"Asia Ethnic Cultural Performances" is jointly presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Hong Kong and supported by the Consulate General of Japan in Hong Kong.
