Here's a video of 박인희 (Bak In-hee), a Korean folk singer Suki turned me on to. She was famous during the 1970s and 80s and is still popular, though I suppose that to younger people she seems rather dated. Personally, I find a lot of depth of feeling to her music. Of course, growing up in Canada during that period, I didn't know about her then. But for some reason she triggers feelings of nostalgia in me, and I'm not sure why. (With Suki, of course, the nostalgia is front and centre.) Because she's female and a folk singer, I suppose the automatic comparison would be with Joan Baez or Joni Mitchell, though I find her voice places her in a slightly different league. Strongly recommended.
