The 'Deep Song' of Korea

Music of the world

Minyo is the traditional song of Korea. The nine women featured on this CD are amongst the very best singers in the country. They are accompanied by a musical ensemble featuring two zithers, a flute, a fiddle, a oboe and a drum. The songs —whose French and English translation has been included in the liner notes— reflect the various facets of the Korean soul from unrestrained extravaganza to intense nostalgia. Also worthy of note is the diversity of the styles performed by these remarkable singers. According to the Koreans themselves, minyo becomes spicier as you travel southwards. Embark on a musical journey to the depth of the Korean soul. ________________________________________
