i hope everyone will forgive the long absence.. i've been in the middle of another transcontinental move! i figure after such a break i'd better come back with something big; so today we'll hear from the incredible female-fronted shan rock group, naang naang. i don't know anything about the composition or history of the group, other than that they're from burma/myanmar's shan state, which shares a long and porous border with northern thailand. i also know that they have one of the heaviest guitars in the golden triangle! i got a lot of questions about this band after i played the lead track here on gary sullivan's awesome radio show, so this cassette should make a few people pretty happy.. enjoy!!

Oh, MAN! You hit a grand slam with this one, Amigo... It's got everything, psychedelic guitar, haunting echos, and that screahing top noitch vocal from an Asian Femme Fatale. THANX ~~~~

one of my favorite cassettes. Nang Num Mao is also featured on this cassettes. She sings "aue pew moe khaaw may", "mok hong aw", and "kho kwaam yuen thueng aay ko haan". the rest of the songs are sung bu Nang Nang. do you have any more shan cassettes? it's such a special scene. have you heard this cassette?
