Arirang is a popular form of Korean folk song and the outcome of collective contributions made by ordinary Koreans throughout generations.
Essentially a simple song, it consists of the refrain ‘Arirang, arirang, arariyo’ and two simple lines, which differ from region to region. While dealing with diverse universal themes, the simple musical and literary composition invites improvisation, imitation and singing in unison, encouraging its acceptance by different musical genres.
