various / sublime frequencies - Molam : Thai Country Groove From Isan (Vol. 1)

**Now available on double vinyl housed in tip-on style gatefold jacket!** Latest in the Sun City Girls’ acclaimed, inspiring Sublime Frequencies series. Molam is a multi-faceted folk music native to laos and the predominantly rural northeastern region of thailand known as Isan - home to myriad ethnic groups and provinces, and once a part of present-day laos. ‘Mo’ meaning 'master' and ‘Lam’ meaning 'song', Molam literally translates into 'master singer', but it remains more of an umbrella term covering over a dozen types of Lam styles in which male and female singers can be backed by a free-reed bamboo mouth organ called a khaen or indigenous lute-like instruments (the phin or the soong). The classic recordings featured here are selections from rare vinyl LP’s, 45s and cassettes recorded in Isan and beyond between the 1970s and 1980s. This was a pivotal time when music of the region began to be electrified and integrated with western instruments. When electric bass, effected guitars, electric organs, kit drums and horns played alongside the khaen and the phin. Molam had never sounded this way before - and due to the typically ephemeral nature of the music industry and the introduction of the modern keyboard workstation, molam will never sound like this again.
