1950年代初頭から80年代後半までの珍しいグローバルポップ及びフォークミュージックに焦点を当てたリリースを行うフランスAkuphone。今や説明不要となったフランスのフィールドレコーディストLaurent Jeanneauによる、南ラオスの少数民族の伝統音楽にフォーカスした音源集。本作は別々に出版されたAKULP1009とAKULP1010、2枚のLPを一つに纏めた大変お得なCD版。口オルガンとも言われるケーン演奏に、ゴングや笛が登場するアンサンブル形態、シャーマンによる歌唱、中国の詩を歌う女性などなど、興味深い且つ面白い録音ばかりが飛び出す全19曲入り。









Akuphone presents a collection of recordings of various musical practices from the Laotian provinces of Champasak, Attapeu, Sekong and Saravan. These documents are a perfect introduction to the traditional music of South Laos minority groups. Popular modern music is widely spread but visitors are barely ever exposed to ancient acoustic practices from villages. The most famous and typical one is the molam Lao, an art of singing accompanied with the khene, a mouth organ which is the symbol of Laos. This collection compels one to discover the brao gongs, the triang bamboo flutes, the Lao, Ta Oy, Alak, OI, Pacoh or Nyaheun mouth organs as well as the powerful singing accompanying these instruments.

Caught on the spot, these outstanding testimonies were collected between 2006 and 2013 by Laurent Jeanneau, aka King Gong. Through his researches, this self-taught ethnologist has gradually become one of the specialists of the field, building up a collection of complete and fascinating sound archives which contribute documenting parts of this immaterial heritage. MUSIC OF SOUTHERN LAOS brings some light on a region of South East Asia still largely unknown from the general audience as well as the recently reborn ethnographic musical industry.
