JENG YI is a Korean drum and dance ensemble founded in 1998. The group performs an exciting repertoire of original compositions, dance works, and traditional pieces. The members of the group perform primarily on four percussion instruments: two types of leather drums and two types of metal gongs. Not just accomplished musicians, the members of Jeng Yi are also dancers. The ensemble performs the much-talked-about piece Pyong, in which each member dances while spinning a ribboned hat called the Sangmo. Committed to building upon the conventions of traditional performing arts, Jeng Yi continues to compose, create, and workshop new ideas for future compositions and productions.
