Tune of the Day: Doraji
“Doraji” is a folk song popular among the ancient Korean and Chinese peoples. The song originated from North Korea. The doraji of the title is a beautiful wildflower, which is usually called the Chinese bellflower in English. This white flower grows on the shady slopes of Korean mountains.
“Doraji” and “Arirang” are the two folk songs that represent North and South Korea. Interestingly enough, they are both performed in triple meter.
