thonghuad faited - Diew Sor Isan: The North East Thai Violin Of Thonghuad Faited

**High quality pressing, released for 1st time outside Thailand. Includes English-Japanese liner notes** We've said it before and we'll say it again and again; we'll never fail to be amazed by the music that comes out of Thailand. Japan's wonderful EM Records are taken by the sound with this remarkable and beautifully recorded album of works by one of Isan's most revered Sor players - a traditional Thai violin with two strings, most commonly associated with the rural or "Molam" region in the north east which shares many relations with Cambodia and Lao. And ironically enough, from the opening bars of 'Diew Sor' you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd bought a Celtic Ceilidh record by mistake. It'd take a musicologist to explain why that's so, but without one to hand we'll just have to remain pleasantly baffled. Soon enough in 'Diew Sor Kid Hod Baan (Missing Home)' the legendary Sor's player Thonghuad Faited's more ornate flourishes belie its provenance, but we can't help being reminded of the similarities, even on the disco-fired 'Eau Aree See Sor' or his most famous and deeply traditional instrumental 'Diew Sor Diew Khaen'. Right, we'll shut up about that now because to be fair, there are similarities to eastern Chinese music also (but, seriously...WTF!), and there's much more to shout about, from the funky, droning dip of 'Lam Plearn Isan Samakkee' to 'Huaongthong's Rumble Dance' and the hyper instrumental 'Magic Glasses', which all amount to one of the maddest, most otherworldly and compelling LPs we've heard in an age. You know it's recommended!
