The Eastern Connection
This mix details the diversity but also the commonality of melodies, modes and arrangements that have darted back and forth between these countries over many decades, muddying the origin, whilst keeping these different styles alive and well.
In 2012, the ‘Paradise Bangkok’ label was set up and began issuing limited reissues of original Thai 45s which were eagerly snapped up by collectors the world over. This promo-only mix maps out the next phase of our project, as we broaden our musical focus, and seek to document little known tracks from Asmara to Jakarta, and Bangkok to Sana’a.
