Rare cosmic Lao synth pop recorded in Paris 1980. Slow-paced drums with off beats softly phased with guitar and misty synthesizers. The lam soeng was one of the most renowned stylistic variations of a popular Lao musical genre. Sothy creates an unusual arrangement with the instrumental introduction separate from the canon, the synthetic mix is stripped down of the traditional organology. "Tawai" (offering) is just as enigmatic: a beat box, a lightly reverberated voice as well as a guitar solo and a small synthesizer break. Parisian producer Shelter, aka Alan Briand, provides mixes for both songs.
