Event Details

Join CultureHub and the Seoul Institute of the Arts for a trans-continental concert. Shakuhachi player Ralph Samuelson, bansuri player Steve Gorn and percussionist / multi-instrumentalist Yukio Tsuji will play live in New York City with instrumentalists at the Seoul Institute of the Arts. 

Three pieces, including “Universal Flute” will be played together live. From musician Ralph Samuelson: 


"The Universal Flute" is a small piece composed for solo shakuhachi in 1946 by the acclaimed, pioneering American composer Henry Cowell. This is the first American composition for the shakuhachi. As the title implies, it indeed captures something universal in the sound of the flute, and hence seems appropriate for adaptation by different flutes of the world. 


Other pieces to be performed live between the two locations include, Arirang and Silent Night.
