Product Description
The Music and Text:

This is a traditional Korean folksong about two brothers, called Heungboo and Nolboo. It has been transcribed for two voices and features Romanization of Korean characters. The text was translated by Korean nationals and so is highly accurate; however, you may see the spellings as Heungbu and Nolbu in other texts because translators often choose different spellings to represent the sounds heard. This score is appropriate for older elementary grades - it was originally performed by a grade 4 class.

The Story:

A father dies and evenly distributes his wealth between his two sons. The older boy, Heungboo, is greedy and claims the wealth all for his own. The younger boy, Nolboo, is generous and kind. One day, he saves a sparrow from a snake and mends its broken leg. To repay Nolboo, the sparrow gives him a seed, which when planted gives wealth and blessings. Heungboo, hearing of his brother's good fortunes, finds the sparrow, breaks its leg, and then mends it; he hopes for a similar fortune. The seed he is given, however, only gives destruction and misfortunes.

Thank you for viewing this product. I work at a school with a large Korean population and it's been my pleasant to share a piece of this wonderful culture with you. If you have any requests for other Asian folksongs, please contact me at your convenience.
