British Singer Joss Stone Plays "Unofficial Gig" In North Korea

British singer-songwriter Joss Stone performed an informal gig in the capital of nuclear-armed North Korea as part of her ambitious project to perform in every country on earth.Stone, has performed in more than 175 countries since embarking on the Total World Tour five years ago, was pictured singing in a bar in Pyongyang in front of a small group of tourists and guides on Wednesday night.

 

 

The 31-year-old artist, who has recently sung in Syria, Pakistan and Iraq, announced the trip on Instagram Tuesday before boarding a plane to the North."It's a fine day to go to North Korea," she said in a video message taken at the Beijing Capital International Airport.

 

 

"We'll be getting on a plane very soon to go to Pyongyang...? A place in North Korea, anyway. It's gonna be fun," she added.Stone said she was practicing a traditional Korean folk song 'Arirang' -- listed as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage in both the North and South -- for her audience in Pyongyang.

 

 


The visit was arranged by Simon Cockerell, who runs Koryo Tours, which specialises in trips to the isolated country.Cockerell described the performance as an "unofficial gig" and posted photos of Stone singing for around 40 tourists and guides at a bar he identified as the Yanggakdo cinema complex.
