Korean older popular music (psychedelic or not)
|Following the sitemeter referrals leads sometimes to interesting discoveries. So me having some time ago made a note on one of the Pearl Sisters duo singing again googledly lead me to a site of psychedelic music, which also has a quite extensive introduction on "psychedelic" Korean music in English. Not being familiar with psychedelic music I'm not sure if the stuff introduced in the three pages is actually that, but since the contents is mainly about Shin Joong-hyun, it is at least cool. (Hope this also helps to show that there is or at least has been much in Korean music besides all the dance crap.) Once again, nostalgy for the time one has never experienced. |
A few sound file links to Sin Joong-hyun's music:
• Shin Joon-hyun and The Men: Arûmdaun Kangsan, the great 10-minute classic of Korean popular music.
• Kim Jung-mi: Param (wma, 20kb/s); she is one of the main performers of Shin's tunes. Such a wonderful voice, deep, strong.
• Kim Jung-mi: Kodokhan maûm (wma, 20kb/s)
