Radio Asia Retro Sounds playlist
Radio Asia Retro Sounds are mostly songs from the 1960s and 70s Japan, Korea, Cambodia and Vietnam.
Beautiful, sweet, dance melodies performed by legendary artists, such as Sinn Sisamouth, Park Kwang Soo and Kim Jung Mi are intertwined with elements of psychedelic rock by Osamu Kitajima or the Dengue Fever formation. The compilation also includes some surprising modern interpretations of cult classics, such as the Thai version of The Beatles' "Come Together" and "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." The Yamasuki Singers project, a pseudo-Japanese concept album by Daniel Vangarde and Jean Kluger, definitely deserves a mention. Their song "Yama Yama" was featured in the soundtrack for season two of the “Fargo” series.
Radio Asia Festival is a music event which from 2013 brings closer the achievements of independent artists from South, East and South-East Asia. As part of Radio Asia, Warsaw's clubs and theaters have been filled with the songs of Buddhist monks and the ecstatic wailing of Korean rockers, wild songs of Chinese steppes and the moaning of a burning cello, masterpieces of minimalism and jazz stunts, synth-pop backgrounds and rebellious Thai soul. The next edition of the event is planned for December 2021.
