The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band
The band plays vintage molam music from Isan, in the North-East of Thailand, with a 21st century twist. Featuring Kammao Perdtanon on phin (Thai lute), Sawai Kaewsombat on khaen, a type of bamboo harmonica, and backed by Piyanart Jotikasthira on bass, Phusana Treeburut on drums and Chris Menist on percussion the band have just completed a successful 2nd tour of Europe. Whilst based on the traditional molam sounds of Isan, the band also draw out the trance-like qualities of the music be it the repeated motifs of ‘Sao Sa Kit Mae’ lead by Sawai’s ethereal khaen, or the driving grooves of ‘Lam San Disco’ where Kammao’s psyched out phin comes to the fore. Rooted in tradition yet with an eye to the future, The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band have already made waves on the live stage, and their first studio recording very much continues in the same vein. Chris Menist and Maft Sai are also behind the highly acclaimed ‘The Sound of Siam’ compilations on Soundway Records, as well as releases for Finders Keepers, Light In The Attic and their own Paradise Bangkok label. https://soundcloud.com/kartel/kwang-noi-chaolay/s-R2Y3h

Yesterday we got asked by Recyclart to fill in a last minute dj slot tonight due to a cancellation by Dom Thomas.
From 23:00- 0:00 we will fill in with a pure Rebel Up Thai dj set inside the Recyclart.
The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band brings Molam folk & lovely Thai party music from the ’60s and ’70s in a modern sexy sound. DJ’s Maft Sai and Chris Menist put out reissues on Finders Keepers and Soundway and as a result of the succes, they formed this Thai live band. Smong the musicians there’s the 72-year old Sawai Kaewsombat on khaen mouth organ and Kammao Perdtanon aka the ‘Jimi Hendrix of the Phin’ (thai guitar lute). These 2 icons of the Molam sound of the Northern Isan region of Thailand are accompanied by young percussionists and the DJ’s.
Maga Bo‘s sound is drenched in deep Brazilian rhythms (maracatu, samba reggae, capoeira…), with dark bass and heavy layers of percussion as a perfect symbiose of organic & electronic sounds. organische en elektronische klanken, inspired by folklore, hip hop and soundsystem culture. Dancing assured! Check this recent Brazilian underground compilation that he compiled!
