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...

Acoustic Morlam Jam

After the second night at the Temple, the musicians invited me back to their house for more whiskey, food and some more music.

The Guy on the left is the Phin Player/vocalist for most of these recordings, as well as the soloist on most of the full band recordings, he is also responsible for the full color murals at the monastary. The guy in the middle was the youngest of the group, playing bass and percussion mostly, he spoke the best english. The third dude is the main MC as well as a percussionist, he was too drunk to sing by this point though, born in Lao in the 1950s.

Here are selected recordings from that night:
In the end of the fourth track you can hear one of the guys (middle in the top picture) give me the headscarf i'm wearing  in the photo below, because i gave him my leather jacket at a previous show.
