Koryo Tours Blog posts on North Korean songs and music.
Yanggak Island Discs is Koryo Tour’s blog posts devoted to North Korean songs and music. We collect and record old North Korean vinyl, placing the recordings on our Soundcloud account. For each track, we put online, we try to provide some relevant information to place the song in the context of North Korean society and history.
See below for our track list to-date.
