Korean Traditional music Casette-Asia Record co-ALC-1026

Here's some more Traditional Korean Music as an accompaniement to Onx's great Sinawi lp upload.

A- Mystery Casette of Korean traditional music , bought in a grocery shop that made damned fine Kimchi , sadly he place is long gone.

Asia record co-ALC 1026
this is a beauty , even if it requires some tolerance of saturated recording levels in spots .... the first Track sounds like 80's hardcore band Steel Pole Bathtub , at double speed through a lead pipe!!!
(its a processional percussion ensemble piece)

After that the rest is recorded at high but clear levels.... the whole tape has a beautiful grainy quality i like a lot.
Side a .. features Flute , and Piri solos, and court music for ensemble
Side b, features , mostly Kayagum with a bit of percussion.

perhaps some korean speaker/reader can help clarify what's actually present ..

My wife and I have become addicted to Korean historical drama. We highly recommend anyone looking for a fresh,exciting,MOVING,

Thanks to my wife, who is not a clown, i have become entralled with Korean historical dramas. The first one I watched was "Dae-Jo Young",and 130 some episodes later, I was hooked for life. Anyone looking for human emotions, great plots, fascinating characters, action that is very realistic without gratuitus gore,historical sweep,military strategy,political intrigue and good old-fashioned romance would be well rewarded to check into this genre, We watch them here on the Korean TV channels offered on cable TV. I think many Americans would enjoy these shows if they were exposed to them. BTW, the modern Korean family comedy and drama shows are mostly great, too!
