brisbane is a city of burgeoning multiculturalism. to this end, when i headed to the korean community's cultural day, great fun was to be had. apart from food, displays and speakers, the performances were spectacular, full of colour and movement. nong ak (농악) is a traditional farmers' dance and was done to celebrate the end of harvest. the foreground drum is more like the bass drum that keeps the beat with the bg drum is double ended and is of a higher pitch. long ribbons on the dancers' heads twirl in wonderful patterns. a great day had by all. looking forward to this year's event.

I was not aware of this day in Brisbane, when does it usually occur? I should have, my partner in Korean, she would have enjoyed this.
Yes, Brisbane is changing, for the better. I went to Inala today (even just posted a pics from there here) and that is so interesting too with it's large Vietnamese community there.
There are so many Korean restaurants in the city now, my friend calls part of Elizbeth Street Korea Street :) It has a great lively atmosphere nowadays.
I like the closeness of this shot, the strong colours, this is an intimate good quality shot, with a creative composition.

this is a presentation to the part of the music...without which it would not make an excitement. Well done. Sothy
