Daechwita 대취타. A music practice that emerged towards the end of the Joseon dynasty (1392-1897) to accompany royal processions. Literally translated as "great blowing and hitting", it is played on wind instruments: nabal, nagak, taepyeongso; and percussion: jabara, jing, yonggo and the ulla, which has fallen into disuse today. The Republic of Korea Army currently uses daechwita for the changing of the guard at Seoul's Gyeongbok and Deoksu palaces.
