“태평가” by Song So Hee

I discovered Song So Hee‘s Arirang about 6-7 months back. She represents the new generation of Folk performers. I really like her. This song, I really love it. The melody is very joyful. The original singer, Seon Wu Il Seon, started her carrier in 1934 until 1940 when she went North, just like Kim Ki Rim. She is said to have died around 1990.

Title: 태평가 / 太平歌 (Song of Peace)
Lyrics: Kang Nam Weol (강남월)
Music: Jeong Sa In (정사인)
Original Singer: Seon Wu Il Seon (선우일선)
Year: 1935

짜증을 내어서 무엇하나? 성화를 받지어 무엇하나?
속상한 일도 하도 많으니, 놀기도 하면서 살아가세
니나노~~~ 닐리리야~ 닐리리야~ 니나노~
얼싸 좋아 얼씨구 좋다
벌 나비는 이리저리 펄펄
꽃을 찾아서 날아든다~

청사초롱에 불 밝혀라, 잊어던 낭군이 다시 온다
공수래 공수거 하니, 아니나 노지는 못하리라
니나노~~~ 닐리리야~ 닐리리야~ 니나노~
얼싸 좋아 얼씨구 좋다
벌 나비는 이리저리 펄펄
꽃을 찾아서 날아든다~

Seon Wu Il Seon c. 1934

선우일선 c. 1934

춘하추동 사시절에, 소년행락이 몇 번인가
술취하여 흥이 나니, 태평가나 불러보세
니나노~~~ 닐리리야~ 닐리리야~ 니나노~
얼싸 좋아 얼씨구 좋다
벌 나비는 이리저리 펄펄
꽃을 찾아서 날아든다~

개나리 진달화 만발해도, 매란국죽만 못하리라
싸국자 절개를 몰라두니, 이보다 큰 설움 또 있으리
니나노~~~ 닐리리야~ 닐리리야~ 니나노~
얼싸 좋아 얼씨구 좋다
벌 나비는 이리저리 펄펄
꽃을 찾아서 날아든다~

Here’s the same song with a much more traditional arrangement. From left to right, the instruments are – correct me if I’m wrong – 해금 (Haegeum, it features in drama Dong Yi); 가야금 (Gayageum, it can be seen in dramas like Painter of the Wind); the 3rd and 4th instrument are similar but I think the 3rd one is 현금 (Hyeongeum) and the 4th one, 아쟁 (Ajaeng, it sits on a stand); 대금 (Daegeum, sort of big transverse flute made of bamboo); then I guess 단소 (Danso, a small flute) and last instrument 장구(Janggu, the famous double face drum that can be seen in Samul Nori)…
