Newly-formed student organization, Hanwoollim UW, is raising funds online through GoFundMe. Their goal is to raise $8,000 in order to purchase their own traditional Korean instruments and performance outfits by the time school begins at the University of Washington on September 27.

According to their GoFundMe, Hanwoollim UW is currently a group of twelve Korean and Korean American students who play samulnori, a type of traditional Korean music. They hope to grow their membership and explore other types of performances, such as traditional Korean drumming. Hanwoollim UW performs at a range of events, from events at UW to the Torchlight Parade.
