31 March 2006. The six-member Dulsori percussion group from South Korea is at the National Theatre for an evening of traditional Korean music organised by the Ethiopian ministry of culture and tourism in conjunction with the embassy of the Republic of Korea. The musicians give a contemporary rendition of the ancient Pungmul folk ritual involving drumming and dance. Now in its 20th year, Dulsori has performed all over the world. The Addis Ababa event comes under a bilateral agreement signed by Ethiopia and South Korea in August 2003 to strengthen cultural relations between the two countries. It follows on from the exhibition of contemporary Korean art held at the National Theatre in June 2004. 19.00.
