Pochonbo Electronic Ensemble - 보천보전자악단 is North Korea's best known musical group. The group has been active for over 25 years and has released close to 200 albums. It is a household name in North Korea and also enjoys recognition in Japan and China. The ensemble is famous for its' inspired use of electronic instuments including bass, guitar, synthesizer and drums.

Additional electronic effects are often created and edited in a sound studio following live recordings in order to achieve the hallmark synth-pop sounds. The ensemble has written and performed marches, polkas, waltzes, bossanova, cha-cha and ballad pieces during its long history. It has also interpreted countless traditional and revolutionary folk songs from Korea and China as well as several Russian and European tunes. PEEs music is frequently on the themes of love of ones' country, ideology and loyalty towards the political leadership of North Korea.

Friendship, love and the beauty of nature are other common themes. Cover versions by PEE of non-Korean songs include "Katyusha", Наш тост, Kalinka" Pesnya o Tblisi (Russian) as well as "Shaozhui hao" and many other well known Chinese melodies. The group has also done covers of European songs such as "L'Amour est Bleu" and 80s British hit "Brother Louis" by Modern Talking! It's best known melody outside of North Korea is "Fiparam" (Whistle) from 1990. Music of the PEE is played daily on radio in North Korea. The group regularly gives concerts around the country and appears on national TV.

Jon Hyon-Young, Kim Gwang-Suk, Ri Gyong-Suk, Ri Bun-Yi and Jo Geum-Hwa are some of the most famous singers in the group during its long history. Rumours about scandals in the band as well as about the imminent dissolving of the PEE have been circulating in the Korean speaking Yanbian province of China for years. But since North Korean media does not report on celebrity gossip, the rumours are investigated or proven to be right or wrong. However the band is still going strong, although with plans to modernise its' style and image.
