Thailand means different things to different people. Beyond the beaches and tourist spots lies a world of music still waiting to be discovered. Be it spaced out jazz, raw funk or the meditative sounds of the North East, Soundway has dug deep into the country's vinyl archives to present a broad range of vintage sounds that underlines Thailand's status as one of South East Asia's musical hot spots.
As Soundway’s entry point into the Asian music world, The Sound of Siam CD and double LP offers a unique vantage point to the most experimental period in Thai musical history. The 19 tracks reflect the outcome of a twentieth century journey from Thai classical to Luk Krung and Luk Thung – music that incorporated western influences such as jazz, surf guitar, ballroom and even Latin and African.
The music maps changing social demographics, the movement of people, culture and language from countryside to city and all during a period when the record labels were at their most experimental. Reviews
