ROYAL COURT MUSIC OF THAILAND

One in the Smithsonian Folkways series

Artist: Various

Reticent yet dynamic, sophisticated and delicate, this recording contains four cherished and exquisite compositions performed with an enchanting mix of xylophones, gongs, cymbals, fiddles, guitars, and breathtaking vocals. Instrumental and vocal music of the Thai classical repertoire draws listeners into a realm of ornate tonal variations and textured rhythms. Recorded in 1994 in Bangkok, this studio recording features musicians of the Bangkok College of Dramatic Arts Fine Arts Department, performing the traditional and highly refined music of the Thai royal court.

"Splendid example of thoroughly contemporary exotica." –Boston Rock

With every purchase comes documentation that explains not just the sounds but their circumstances -- their who, what, when and why.

Many of the CDs are not accompanied by the originial album cover as some of them are produced only one or two copies at a time and the covers are not as readily reproducible.
