Music of North Korea

Guten Abend!
I don’t speak German, but I was just feeling that it’s been too long since I’ve done any writing on North Korea. The Last Time Yes! I am not a person that believes in guilty pleasures, but I find that North Korean Music is a rather surprising and enjoyable getaway. (Sad Irony of Existence)

I wish I felt the same way about the music of Somalia. Normally, I like music from horrible places.

If you want to go with a really traditional and folkloric sound, I recommend this piece. I guess it would be folkloric meets concert.

This piece really struck with me the operatic and orchestral touch. As I always emphasize, dramatic vocals are the factor that really captivate my intrigue.

One of my philosophies is that music always has to be fun. It has to catch emotion, but it also just has to have jovial qualities continuously running through. This is a Russian song performed by a North Korean singer, and she does rather well. Like I said, Jovial.

There are so many of these videos floating around, and they are awesome. In the last Korean Music PartyKMP=DPRK,I showed a North Korean guitar prodigy, and this is an ensemble.

I wish I could confirm 100% that all these musicians and music pieces (save Russia) are authentically North Korean. I have some doubts, but as far as I know, they are all North Korean.

So this morning, I caught a Google Banner Advertisement, which read “Travel to North Korea: Flights from $149.”

Firstly, WTF?

Anyone want to fly coach?


  1. North Korea has music. again, you have expanded my mind. I want to do LSD now and wear an uniform.

  2. I wonder if they have sunshine there.
    Or maybe it is all dark clouds and thunderclaps.

  3. Hello! Thank for your writting. And your phone has attractive ringtone. If not, please visit:

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
