Sŏnsori Sant’aryŏng and Kyŏnggi Minyo

(p.73) Chapter 3 Masculinity in Demise
Broken Voices

University of Hawai'i Press

The history of the folksong genres Sŏnsori sant’aryŏng and Kyŏnggi minyo reveals that the two genres have changed dramatically in terms of their gender representation over the years. The life stories of the first holders of the two genres testify to the significant impact of colonialism and the Korean War on their work. They also highlight the importance of personal networks and the media for the careers of performers and the preservation of their art. Detailed analysis of the music, repertoire, and presentation of the traditions demonstrates that various changes were effected before and after they were appointed Important Intangible Cultural Properties.
