CAIRO - 8 April 2019: Alexandria Opera House will hold a concert on April 8 performed by the Arirang Korean Traditional Arts Ensemble entitled "Arirang the Peace Road" at Sayed Darwish Theater.

The concert will be held in cooperation with the Korean Cultural Center in Cairo on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the independence movement of March 1 and the establishment of the first transitional government in Korea.

The program includes a number of artistic performances combining tradition and modernity with the aim of revitalizing Korean traditional arts.

On the sidelines of the concert, a photo exhibition will be held displaying pictures of the Korean people's struggle for independence and national liberation from the Japanese colonial rule.

Arirang, the Korean song and dance ensemble, will perform an assortment of traditional Korean songs, including “Boatman’s Song,” from the Korean opera Shim Chung, which is derived from a Korean folktale about a young maiden and her devotion to her blind father, whom she helps regain his sight.

Other tracks of interest include “Boat Song of Ko-Je Island” with its rhythmic ending and the close harmonies and beautiful vocals of “Song of Ja-Jin-San.”

Rich in artistry and musicality, the ensemble's music is a valuable piece of Korean culture and history.
