LAM PHAEN MOTORSAI THAM SAEP: THE BEST OF LAM PHAN Vinyl Record
Now just $25.98
For a limited time only
The best of Khwanta Fasawang, the number-one soulful sister of 1980s lam phaen, queen of the cassette era. She was chosen, from over a thousand demo tapes, by legendary producer and songwriter Doi Inthanon, who wanted to create a new streetwise dance music. The lam phaen genre was the result, and Khwanta Fasawang was the singer he chose to be it's representative. Combining earlier musical trajectories with electronic elements and lyrics dealing with drinking and love, money and motorcycles, Khwanta led the cassette-format lam phaen boom of the early '80s, gaining great popularity in both her native Isan and across the whole country. A change in lyrical concerns and the use of electronics has parallels with Jamaican dancehall, and this music can be heard as one of the roots of lam sin, the Thai bass music that began in the '80s and '90s, but these recordings are not mere musicology. This is living music, and very fine music at that. Queen Khwanta, Sister Fasawang. She can't be denied. Selection, liner notes, and cover art by Soi 48. Includes 20-page booklet with English liner notes and lyrics.
