Fri 14 July Rebel Up Soundclash @ OCCII, A’dam w/ *live band* Apichat Pakwan (Thailand) + more

What a great vibe in Rotterdam last thursday at Pantropical / Los Mirlos concert and sunday the Wundergarten at Ruigoord. This friday is our final night in OCCII before they close for the holidays.

Special 10″ EP release party concert of Thai/Dutch group Apichat Pakwan + afterparty.
Apichat Pakwan is a group of musicians from Thailand & The Netherlands. They make what they call Esantronics, a hybrid mix of molam (folk music of the ethnic Lao, of whom the largest population is living in Esan, another name for Northeast-Thailand), dub, hiphop & electro.

The Thai musicians of the group are known as the most talented molam musicians of the new generation: Pongsapon Upani (1991) & Artit Krajangsree (1989). At the same time, they are well-respected innovators of the genre who mix new technologies with the original acoustic instruments of Lao folk music. Furthermore, Pongsapon is the regular kaen-player (mouthorgan that is the main instrument in molam) of legendary artists Chaweewan Dumnern & Angkanang Khunchai, and a gifted molam-singer himself. Named after last-mentioned molam-diva, Apichat Pakwan is completed by Thai percussion-player Angkanang Pimwankum (1992), with her 25 years the youngest member of the group.

Apichat Pakwan released their first vinyl single ‘Angkanang’ in 2016 on Animist Records, a record label founded by Olivier Schreuder. Their second 10” single ‘E-Ong Muan Sun’ (meaning ‘Delicious Nutritious Banana’) will be presented on this night in OCCII and will be for sale during the night!
