Pyongyang, January 23 (KCNA) — The merited choir of the song and dance ensemble of the Korean People’s Army is now putting a number of songs on the stage to give a strong impetus to the forced march of working people for the final victory.
General Kim Jong Il enjoyed a performance given by the choir after he inspected the front some days ago.
Among choral pieces was a song “We began on the debris”.
General Kim Jong ll, who was lost in deep emotion to hear the song, told the choir to sing the song again.
At his request the song was sung again.
He told officials that while hearing the song, he could hardly repress excitement, looking back upon the tireless efforts made by President Kim Il Sung all his life to build a powerful socialist country, an earthly paradise of the people, on the debris.
Whenever he enjoyed the performances given by the choir, he told the choir to sing the song and sang the song in his heart before saying that the song is a famous song and that it is an unforgettable and precious one.
The song was created 20 years ago. It sings of the benevolence and feats of the President who built the Powerful socialist country, the anthropocentric socialist system, in this land. The song has been popular among the people.
Singing the song, the Korean people look with deep emotion back on the undying exploits of the President in building the socialist country, independent in politics, self-supporting in the economy and self-reliant in national defence, pulling through difficulties after the Korean War and renew their determination to add lustre to the system established by him.
The song, called a song of noble memory and pledge, is now giving the Korean people optimism and confidence in the future.
