Korea - Land of the Morning Calm: Sijo Lyrical Songs performed by Park In-Gyu (part 2)
"His sound is like comfort imbued with the beauties of old houses which are covered with moss." - Kim Kyong-bae (Important Intangible Cultural Treasure #30). Park In-gyu is considered to be one of the finest vocalists of his generation. This is the second part of his performances of sijo-lyrical songs. The sijo song form uses classical Korean poetry as text and is characterized by a slow, calm melodic progression. It's best to listen to these sijo performances while playing chess, knitting, or simply contemplating life slowly.
