North Korea's Unhasu Orchestra performed with Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra in Paris for a historic joint concert on Wednesday night, local time. The sold-out performance lasted two hours and thirty minutes, attracting an audience of around two-thousand people.

Conductor Chung Myung-whun, who organized the joint performance, directed the Koreans' beloved folk song "Arirang" as the last song for the night.

Conductor Chung said he plans to take this as an opportunity for musicians in the two Koreas to meet in person and perform in a joint concert in the future.

North Korean ambassador to UNESCO Yoon Young-il and dozens of other North Korean officials also attended the event.
