Chwitadae is an award-winning ensemble on a mission to bring Korean performing arts to an international audience. Taking its name from chwita, literally meaning "to blow and to hit", Daechwita combines winds and percussion in ia style that will stretch Western ears both timberally and melodically. for this program, Chwitadae also includes elements of samulnori, the traditional Korean folk genre. Followed by the performance, there will be a Bibimbap event.
Bibimbap is a Korean signature dish that is loved by many Korean people. It contains rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables), sliced meat, fried/half-cooked egg and gochujang (chili pepper paste). The ingredients are stirred together just before eating. A giant bowl of Bibimbap will be catered by KeumGangSan restaurant in Flushing. The concept of Jeong is what we may call 'affection' or amicable feeling towards something or somebody, and is often shown through sharing. The Center for Korean Studies and Charles B. Wang Center would like to invite you for this unforgettable event and experience the Korean way of Jeong by sharing the Bibimbap.
**This event is Co-Presented by Stony Brook University's Center for Korean Studies and Charles B. Wang Center.
