Folk & Classical Music of Korea

These offerings provide a view of Korean music ranging from the folk music of farmerss' songs and ballads to classical court music, featuring the genre of formal ah ahk. Influences from Korea’s relationship with China over the centuries are reflected in Korea’s music and can be heard here, not only in the texts but also in the style and instrumentation. (Park 1961)
