surely fulfilling rodgers and hammerstein’s wildest dreams, laibach’s extensive tribute to the beloved musical for north korea is an inventive electronic take on the classic.

for this record, Laibach are joined by Boris Benko (Silence) and Marina Mårtensson on vocals and the album gives the Laibach treatment to tracks such as ‘My Favorite Things’, ‘Edelweiss’, ‘Do-Re-Mi’ and ‘Maria’, here reworked as ‘Maria / Korea’ (“How do you solve a problem like Maria / Korea?”). While the majority of the tracks on the album are from the film, the band also included ‘Arirang’, an interpretation of a traditional Korean folk song considered the unofficial national anthem of both North and South Korea, as well as their own workout of the ‘Gayageum’, a traditional Korean zither-like string instrument performed by Pyongyang students.
