North Korea

Arirang
Korean folk song

Collaboration

Our North Korea collaboration was a little different, our focus was mainly on a song called Arirang which is well-known throughout North Korea and South Korea. The old folk song contains a gentle and lyrical melody, it is about leaving, reunion, sorrow and happiness. Nobody knows for sure, who composed it. The two beautiful tour guides Ri So Hyang and Kang So Hyon who helped look after us, did a lovely duet together and sang the song beautifully. The location was a bit impromptu but we had to improvise, so in the front, of a van, we made some music, how total world tour of us! Let us know what you think.

Many thanks to Koryo Tours, who made this trip happen!

North Korea

Gig

We did it! We went to North Korea and played a gig, it was a really unique experience and a special moment for the Total World Tour. We didn't want to leave any countries behind, we just want to allow our music to be heard and bring positive vibes to a place we were told not to go to. A place I wholeheartedly encourage people to visit. Don’t let the media convince you that an entire country is off limits or that the people are unkind or scary, go have a look for yourself, you will be pleasantly surprised.

The trip was exciting and it was a joy to meet lots of like-minded souls at the show. we were all in good hands thanks to our friend Simon who helped organise the trip. If you want to make the same trip we did then get in touch with Koryo Tours. The show was short but fun and it was a nice feeling to be able to bring a little excitement and some giggles to the day just simply by making some noises.

A big thank you to the beautiful lady’s, Ri So Hyang and Kang So Hyon that looked after us.
