Music of Southeast Asia

Music of Southeast Asia

Various Artists FW04423 / FE 4423

Whether sung in Sanskrit or in Vietnamese, or played on renêt or modern violin, “…music in Southeast Asia is dominated by a well-integrated, highly cultivated style which is characteristic of the whole area.” This collection of Music of Southeast Asia features both the popular and traditional music of Myanmar, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, China and Laos and captures the influence, and in certain cases the rejection, of the Western musical tradition on the music of this region.
