In spring 2013, military tensions on the Korean peninsula had reached a boiling point amid escalating rhetoric between North Korea and the United Nations following Pyongyang’s third nuclear test. In this tense atmosphere, a small team of Norwegian artists headed into the heart of the Hermit Kingdom to record a tribute album to international pop stars A-ha, re-interpreted by elite accordion students of Pyongyang’s Kum Song (Gold Star) Music School. They made it out alive, and brought back this spectacular example of musical collaboration against all odds – and fine pop songs, too. Let a hundred a-ha-ccordions play!
