Album Remarks & Appraisals:
David Fanshawe (1942-2010) was a composer, ethnic sound recorder, photographer and TV personality. His ambition to record indigenous folk music began in the Middle East in 1966, and intensified on subsequent journeys through North and East Africa (1969-75). David's legacy is cemented in the Fanshawe Collections, some 3000 tapes and 60,000 images recorded on his travels in Arabia, Africa, South East Asia and the Pacific between 1967-94. This colorful album of exotic and beautiful music from Thailand and Laos, recorded by Mr. Fanshawe, is enchanting, hypnotic and full of charisma.
