This is the third installment from the Thai Funk series and for us the best yet!

Lavishly packaged in a CD housed in a fine bamboo weave from Phanat Nikhom, with a large groovy poster! No covers, no fillers just super obscure disco and funk from Thailand!

Following on from two blistering compilations of Thai Funk, this compilation tuns the clock back to consider the music's antecedents.  The term 'Luk Thung' is derived from a phrase that literally means 'song of the child of the fields'.  Much of Thailand is still made up of rural and semi-rural communities, so it is, in other words, the music of the people.  This form, through taking on modern elements and eolving continues to remain relevant.  Although it was a musical hybrid, Thai funk's rootedness in the popular music of the day, as well as Thai culture, has kept it from a carbon copy, or merely aping a sound from another part of the world.
