Paradise Bangkok's Chris Menist on Resonance FM this week

Adventures In Sounds And Music this week sees the long-awaited return to the studio of globetrotting selector, compiler, writer and South East Asian music specialist Chris Menist of the Paradise Bangkok club, label and now group. With records culled from family stores, record fairs and antiques markets from across the rim of the Indian Ocean, the show will trace musics that travelled on the old school trading ships from East Africa to East Asia, connecting the music of Thailand to Ethiopa, and Dao Bandon to Mahmoud Ahmed. With Derek Walmsley.

Adventures In Sound And Music broadcasts every Thursday evening 9-10:30pm on Resonance FM, and all shows are archived online.
