Taryeong is a type of Korean folk song passed down from generation to generation. No one is sure when they were created. They are strophic in structure, organized into verses and refrain. Like most Korean folksongs, the songs are about anything from lost love to the toils of everyday work to the beauty of nature. The meter is compound with a peppering of hemiolas that gives Korean traditional music its characteristic rhythmic feel.
The text of Shingosan Taryeong reads, in part: Leaves fall as bleak autumn winds blow – chirping crickets remind me of home.
