Artist Info

The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band

The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band
Image from Discogs
Powered by Audioscrobbler™With their popular party series Paradise Bangkok and hand-picked compilations for the fine labels Finders Keepers and Soundway, record collectors and DJs Maft Sai & Chris Menist single-handedly brought back the rich culture of Thai pop music of the 1960s and '70s to the public's attention. The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band is their attempt to stage this extravagant music again: vintage Molam music played with a 21st century vibe, an infectious and highly danceable mixture.

With Kammao Perdtanon who has been dubbed as the "Jimi Hendrix of the Phin" (that's a Thai lute) and the 72-year old Sawai Kaewsombat on Khaen (a sort of an East Asian harmonica) the group features two absolute wizards of Molam, a style originally hailing from the country's poor Isan region. These legendary characters are being backed by a young red-hot rhythm section formed by some of the most up and coming young musicians in Thailand's capital.

The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band's European debut in 2013 and blew everyone away and proved why insiders are considering them a future world music sensation: The combo performed at high-profile events such as Wassermusik Festival in Berlin, Belgium's Sfinks and Poland's leading open air Off and took the audiences by storm. In Katowice they played the main stage at prime time, causing a few hundred Polish kids to go ballistic and jump up and down to an exotic music they had never heard before.
