The music of rare and exceptional artistic expression from North Korea will be showcased at the Korea Society. Eun Sun Jung, an award-winning and talented young kayagŭm (12 and 25 string zither) artist from Seoul, Korea, presents some of the most popular music of North Korea, selected for its vibrant folk music style and its contemporary interpretation of older traditions. This includes the well-known folk songs of Paek Toraji (White Bellflower) and Hanopaekyôn (Living for Five Hundred Years), modern compositions for solo kayagûm based on North Korean folk songs by Hwang Kûm San and Ôm Chan Sôk.
Also, be sure to check out our current gallery exhibit, Feast or Famine: DPRK Agrarian Posters from the Katherina Zellweger Collection, while you're at the concert!
