New Zealand Embassy Seoul, South Korea
New Zealand's internationally-renowned percussion group "Strike" will perform this Friday night (27 July) at 8.00pm at KNUA Hall of the Korea National University of Arts in Seocho-gu, Seoul. Theirs will be the prestigious closing performance of the week-long Second International Percussion Festival in Seoul.
At the Festival's opening ceremony on 23 July, Ambassador Patrick Rata congratulated the organisers on a magnificent event and said Strike's participation would be a wonderful opportunity to highlight and celebrate the 2012 Korea-New Zealand Year of Friendship. He added that "Strike continues our strong South Pacific tradition of drumming, incorporating it with classical and contemporary musical influences for a spectacular performance."
