This Blog is a collection of my recordings and collectings from travelling around Asia...
expect lots of obscure instruments, strange sounds, electric and acoustic instruments, obscure records and tapes, and any other sounds i find on the road.
Please be Patient, as the site is very content heavy, the Soundcloud streams are a bit slow to load...

Morlam Band busking at the temple in Chiang Khan,. Three of the same players from the previous night's restaurant show, the Kong player is on guitar, but only playing the bass strings, the bass Phin player is on a standard Phin, and one of the vocalists is playing drum and working the crowd. They are joined by an old man playing Pong Lang, and a female vocalist with a Ching. Nice mellow stuff, they took a while to fall into the groove, so the later tracks are more interesting, track 10 "Morlam Sing," is a stand out track. Another set with an Ehru player coming soon.
