Your North Korean accordion quintet '80s pop cover for the day

Here's the description from YouTube:

a-ha's eternal pop evergreen performed by young accordeon players from Kum Song School, Pyongyang, North Korea. Part of multi-genre project THE PROMISED LAND by director and artist Morten Traavik, opening at the international arts and culture festival Barents Spektakel in Kirkenes, Norway February 8-12, 2012 (Juche 101). 

Traavik is also the guy behind the "Miss Landmine" pageants held in Angola and Cambodia, which we wrote about back in 2008.
