As Soundway’s entry point into the Asian music world, 'The Sound of Siam' offers a unique vantage point to the most experimental period in Thai musical history. The 19 tracks reflect the outcome of a twentieth century journey from Thai classical to Luk Krung and Luk Thung – music that incorporated western influences such as jazz, surf guitar, ballroom and even Latin and African.

The music maps changing social demographics, the movement of people, culture and language from countryside to city and all during a period when the record labels were at their most experimental.

Those of you who loved the Thai Funk' series wiiil love this, especially as it was compiled by the same person Chris Menist!
