C-C MUSIC REACTOR REACTS TO SOHYANG ARIRANG ALONE (A SONG OF UNITY)
Kim Sohyang is a South Korean singer who has made a significant impact on me over the past year, both as a musician and from what I have learned about her as a person. Musically she comes from a Gospel background, and clearly has a strong personal faith. She sings to bring comfort and encouragement, and whenever possible and appropriate, to communicate her faith and the message behind it. In this first article I want to comment on one of her many famous performances. One is a song of national significance to Korea, It is todays chosen track called; Arirang Alone.
The basis of the piece is a traditional folk-song that has almost become an unofficial anthem. In recent times it has come to especially evoke the longing or dream for reunion between South and North Korea. From what I understand, Sohyang and a couple of close family, friends or colleagues are normally involved in setting arrangements for her to sing, and this one certainly expands the breadth and range of the original music, to great effect.
I hope you enjoy this amazing performer and the powerful message and hope that this song evokes in Korean people around the world. It is my chosen New Years day song for 2022. Peace, love and Unity sent from me to all the people of the world watching this video for 2022. Enjoy.😍👌
