Sometimes I can hear the Seoul subway announcements in my head. Sometimes I think I am still there. Circling the city on Line 2. Singing sweetly about the dreams I no longer have.

니나노 난다 (NINANO NANDA) - 한

I came across this group the other day and I can’t stop watching this video. (Full name: 퓨쳐판소리 듀오 니나노 난다/Future Pansori Duo Ninano Nanda) Self-described on their youtube page as “Post electronic dub + Traditional/Contemporary Korean Voice + Future Retro Sensation.”
