A mesmerizing Korean performance features splendid costumes, heartfelt movements, dynamic drums and enchanting singing. Norian Maro, an energetic world music group from Korea, transfers audiences into Leodo, a fantasy island treasured by the people in Jeju, a beautiful province in Korea.
Norian Maro is an innovative traditional Korean performance group based in Jeju Island that is dedicated to fostering national artistic traditions and local folk culture through dance and movement, song and percussion, interwoven with elements of mythology. The significance of its name means ‘a gathering of those enjoying the best of Korean traditional arts’. Originally founded in 2005, Norian Maro has since fused traditional and contemporary performance styles into their production earning them the reputation as one of Korea’s premier traditional music and dance performers. Designated as Jeju’s Specialized Performance Arts Groups in 2010 and Jeju Social Enterprise in 2011, Norian Maro performs at more than 800 shows annually, both domestic and abroad.
