[Korean Female Drummers]

Description:

Photograph of two female drummers from the Korean Folkdancing School in Houston, Texas, performing at the Texas Folklife Festival. They are wearing long fuchsia dresses with long, light pink sleeves. The drums are set up like gongs: hanging from colorful, decorative wooden frames. There are five drums but they are arranged so that each drummer has two of their own and one in the middle that they share. Each musician stands in a space surrounded on three sides by the drums, which are hanging at chest level. The musicians are bending over backwards, playing the drums behind and in front of them with thick wooden sticks. A colorful canopy is hanging over the performance area.
