Two minutes of the lovely vocals of 'The XX' parallel to the most on sync choreographed performance known as the Arirang Festival was the best I could come up with the few shots I had from my recent visit to North Korea. The initial purpose of the trip to Pyongyang was to skate the first skatepark ever to open within the hermit kingdom, but I couldn't resist the lens pointing, especially at the Grand Mass Gymnastics and Artistic Performance, the Arirang.
