This entry in the Sublime Frequencies world Radio series -- where the producers simply feature samples of radio programs from shortwave or other sources -- appears at a very strange time in the nation of Myanmar's history: immediately in the aftermath of Cyclone Nargis, which wiped out tens of thousands of people and left countless others homeless. In fact, as this is being written and the album is on the headphones, it feels completely crazy to listen to music from such a mishmash of Asian cultures being jammed together radio-style. The photograph on the back is of a traffic gridlock that offers a sliver of the complexity of this culture. From funk, country, and folk music to talk shows, commercials, and classical music, Myanmar is reflected as a vibrant, colorful place where culture is as widespread as it is anywhere else.
