21st Century Molam – The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band


  • Product Photo1



The concept of Paradise Bangkok was born out of looking for records. Back in 2009 DJs Maft Sai and Chris Menist pooled together their collection of obscure Reggae, African, Jazz and Thai vinyl to put on the very first Paradise Bangkok party, a place to drink, dance and enjoy the natural musical links between sounds from across the globe. Thai luk thung and molam, both popular, rural music styles were spun alongside Mulatu, Augustus Pablo, R.Burnam and Fela Kuti.

Fast forward to 2012, and The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band made their live debut in the Thai capital. Drawn from different music scenes in Bangkok, the band, (initially formed to back vintage luk thung and molam vocalists who sang live at the events) consists of Kammao Perdtanon on phin, (Thai lute) Sawai Kaewsombat on khaen, a type of bamboo harmonica, Piyanart Jotikasthira on bass, Phusana Treeburt on drums and Chris Menist on percussion. The band have just completed a successful 2nd tour of Europe, which included a support slot for Damon Albarn in Berlin, as well as gigs in Germany, France, Switzerland, Belgium and the Czech Republic.

Whilst based on the centuries-old molam sounds of Isan in the north-east of the country, 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. The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band are rooted in tradition, with an eye to the future…

Paradise Bangkokのコンセプトはレコードを探すことから生まれました。2009年にDJ Maft SaiとChris Menistがレゲエ、アフリカン、ジャズそしてタイのレコードのコレクションをまとめて最初のParadise Bangkokパーティーを開催しました。お酒を飲み、踊り、世界中の音楽を自然と繋げたのです。タイの伝統的な田舎風ミュージックスタイルおいてポピュラーなルクトゥーンとモーラムは、Mulatu、Augustus Pablo、R.Burnam、Fela Kutiと並んでスピンされました。

2012年、The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Bandはタイの首都でライブデビューしました。バンコクの様々な音楽シーンから選抜されバンドが結成されました。(当初はイベントでビンテージのルクトゥーンとモーラムのボーカリストを招聘してライブをするために結成されました。)、Phin奏者Kammao Perdtanon(タイのリュート)、Khaen奏者のSawai Kaewsombat(竹のハーモニカの一種)、ベースはPiyanart Jotikasthira、ドラムはPhusana Treeburt、そしてパーカッションはChris Menistで構成されました。バンドはベルリンでのDamon Albarnのサポートを含む、ドイツ、フランス、スイス、ベルギーそしてチェコ共和国での2回目のヨーロッパツアーを成功させた。

サウンドはタイ王国の北東部にあるIsanに何世紀にもわたるモーラムの音を基に、SawaiのエーテルのようなKhaenがリードする 「Sao Sa Kit Mae」。モチーフを繰り返しトランスのようなクオリティを引き出します。または、「Lam San Disco」では、Kammaoのサイケ音がドライビングして前へ前へとグルーブします。The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Bandは伝統に根ざしています。そして未来を見据えながら…
