Old & New Asian Pop Diaspora

Before We Forget: Old and New Asian Pop Diaspora

Pop music from Central, East, South, and Southeast Asia, including: Thailand, Cambodia, India, and elsewhere. Opens with a modern hip-hop track from Cambodia, which takes a lot of influence from the tracks that follow. Ends with a Thai taxi driver singing and temple doors in Angkor Wat being opened, or closed. Two tracks free here: http://www.aquariumdrunkard.com/2011/03/15/ad-presents-dengue-fever…/
