Formed in 2012 in the Kingdom of Thailand, the capital Bangkok. Members were selected from various music scenes in Thailand in a form derived from the music event “Paradise Bangkok” by the two core members Maft Sai and Chris Menist. It not only keeps the light on the beautiful traditional culture of Molam music, but also means that they succeeded in mixing the “now” and “past” of the music of the world they can’ t stop loving.

There are no specific leaders in the band, and we adopt a style in which each one influences and grows. Therefore, there is no compromise in constantly repeating the experimental sessions and always expressing the latest sound.

Based on the sound of Molam from the Isaan region in the northeastern part of the Kingdom of Thailand, which has been passed down by generations for centuries. In other words, based on “Cultural Standing", they continue to create a new culture that leads to the present with the same spirit as our predecessors who have experimented and developed music.

The concept of Paradise Bangkok was born out of looking for records. Back in 2009 DJs Maft Sai and Chris Menist pooled together their collection of obscure Reggae, African, Jazz and Thai vinyl to put on the very first Paradise Bangkok party, a place to drink, dance and enjoy the natural musical links between sounds from across the globe. Thai Luk thung and Molam, both popular, rural music styles were spun alongside Mulatu, Augustus Pablo, R.Burnam and Fela Kuti. (initially formed to back vintage Luk thung and Molam vocalists who sang live at the events)

Fast forward to 2012, and The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band made their live debut in the Thai capital. The band members are Kammao Perdtanon (Phin), Sawai Kaewsombat (Khaen), Piyanart Kradsiri Jotikasthira (Bass and Guitar), Phusana Treeburut (Drums), Chris Menist (Percussion and Electronics) and Maft Sai (Percussion). The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band have toured extensively since 2013, recently completing 5 tours across Europe, as well as numerous dates around Asia. Highlights have included opening the West Holts stage at Glastonbury, Field Day, and Gilles Peterson’ s Worldwide Festival in 2015.

"Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band's new album is something special" Dan Snaith (Caribou/Daphni)
"So you thought that Thailand was just a one compilation wonder? The story is just beginning..." Gilles Peterson, BBC 6 Music

2012 年にタイ王国、首都バンコクにて結成。中心メンバーであるMaft Sai とChris Menist 二人による音楽イベント「Paradise Bangkok」より派生する形でタイ国内の様々な音楽シーンよりメンバーが選抜された。それはモーラム音楽の美しい伝統文化に光を当て続けるだけでなく、彼らが敬愛してやまない世界中の音楽の” 今” と” 過去” を混在させる事に成功した事を意味する。

バンドには特定のリーダーは存在せず、各自が影響を与えあって成長するスタイルを踏襲。それ故に、常に実験的なセッションを日々繰り返し、常に最新のサウンドを表現する事に妥協がない。タイ王国の東北部にあるイサーン地方に何世紀も伝わるモーラムの音、つまり「文化的な立ち」を基に、実験を重ね音楽を発展させてきた先人達と同じ精神を根底に据え現代にも通じる新しい文化を創造し続けている。

「Paradise Bangkok」のコンセプトは世界中のレコードを探すことから生まれました。2009 年にDJ Maft Sai とChris Menist がレゲエ、アフリカン、ジャズそしてタイのレコードのコレクションをまとめて最初のパーティーを開催しました。お酒を飲み、踊り、世界中の音楽を自然と繋げたのです。タイの伝統的な田舎風ミュージックスタイルおいてポピュラーなルクトゥーンとモーラムは、Mulatu、Augustus Pablo、R.Burnam、Fela Kuti と並んでスピンされたのです。(当初バンドはイベントでビンテージのルクトゥーンとモーラムのボーカリストを招聘してライブをするために結成されました。)

2012 年、Phin 奏者Kammao Perdtanon(タイのリュート)、Khaen 奏者のSawai Kaewsombat(竹のハーモニカの一種)、ベースはPiyanart Jotikasthira、ドラムはPhusana Treeburt、そしてパーカッションのMaft Sai とChris Menist で構成されました。2013 年以来、The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band は広範囲に渡ってツアーを行い、最近ではヨーロッパ各地で5 回のツアーを、アジア各地で数多くのツアーを成功に終ました。ハイライトは、2015 年にグラストンベリーで開催されたWest Holts stage のオープニング、Field Day、そしてGilles Peterson のWorldwide Festival でしょう。
