The Moranbong Band and Regime Consolidation in the DPRK

Today, media in Beijing announced that the Moranbong Band, the all-female ensemble associated closely with Kim Jong-un, will be travelling to China for five days of performances.

An academic paper I delivered last month about the Band is available in audio on SoundCloud; the accompanying Powerpoint is available at the following link: Moranbong Band presentation.

Citation: Adam Cathcart, “The Moranbong Band and Regime Consolidation in the DPRK,” paper presented at VIII Seminario Internacional de Estudios Coreanos, Catholic University of Chile, Santiago, 12 November 2015.
