35.27 신고산타령 Singosan tharyŏng Ballad of New Kosan 新高山打令
Traditional song, various versions exist in both the North and the South. In the colonial period South Hamgyong Province (咸鏡南道) there was a town called 고산 高山 Kosan (High Mountain). The province has been since divided; the part in the DPRK carries still the same name (함경남도), and the town is in 고산군 高山郡 Kosan-gun, which can be found in Google Maps, while the southern part is now in the ROK province of 강원도 江原道 Kangwondo. In 1913 a train station was built on the outskirts the town, and the station as well as the new urban area that sprang around it became called 신고산 = New Kosan (New High Mountain). The song lyrics centre on the station, telling about the emotions of mothers, whose children left home for work somewhere far away as servants, labourers, or soldiers.

Children singing here come from the
만경대혁명학원 Mangyŏngde hyŏkmyŏng hakwŏn 万景台革命学院 Mangyongdae Revolutionary School, an institution established by Kim Il Song in 1947 for the education of the children of his fellow partisans, who became the central leaders of the WPK. It has since produced many of the top level cadres for the party, state and military organizations.
and from the
평양률곡중학교 Phyŏngyang Ryulgok junghakkyo 平壌栗谷中学校 = Pyongyang Ryulgok Middle School, also called ”The Nightingale School”, which is specialized in musical education, and has provided children’s voices to over 3500 songs used in animations, films and other recordings (counted in 2008 for a KCNA article). The school works closely with the party and the military, and talented children continue their musical education in higher establishments.
Within North Korea, the future of these children can be expected to be rather bright.
