The Bundang Mandolin Orchestra from Korea has recently had its 9th subscription concert.
This is the only mandolin orchestra from Korea that I know. The orchestra plays a traditional style of mandolin orchestra music with traditional pieces and arrangements of popular tunes.
I have selected a piece by Dutch composer Joh. B. Kok – Vita Mandolinistica – a piece that is well known in German (and Dutch) mandolin orchestras:
