Defining Korean Folksongs

Defining Korean Folksongs

Characteristics and Terminology

(p.52) Chapter 2 Defining Korean Folksongs
Broken Voices

Roald Maliangkay

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter discusses the realm of Korean folksongs, old and new, their regional characteristics, and their terminology. Urbanization, technological change and political initiatives have greatly affected the creation and standardization of genres, and their valorization. While Confucianism and Buddhism were primary factors in the creation of folksongs in the past, it appears as though Christianity is currently the most likely agent of change.

Keywords:   characteristics, folksong, regional, urbanization, media, terminology, Confucianism, Buddhism, Christianity, gender
