RA Talk: Respecting Southeast Asian Music with Nyshka Chandran
Music from a specific part of the world can educate listeners about that country and its respective culture. It's hoped that artists who play or sample mo lam, gamelan and other Southeast Asian sounds do so with an understanding of context and history. As transmitters of auditory knowledge, how can artists play out culturally significant or traditional music in a responsible manner?
We sit down with some of Southeast Asia's devoted diggers to delve into their research process and discuss their approach to playing out and sampling regional music.
