Unique about Apichat Pakwan is their mix of very traditional instruments with innovative live electronics.
The group was formed by producer Olivier Schreuder (Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 1980), who met a group of highly talented musicians in the city of Khon Kaen (Thailand) while studying the local traditional music.
“Most innovative molam band around” – Bangkok Post (Thailand)
“Beautiful warm, deep transcedental sounds” – DJ Sebcat (Rebel Up! Soundclash, NL)
“The musicians of Apichat Pakwan know the traditional Thai music so well they are capable like no one else to give it a modern twist. The intoxicating groove they create sounds both natural and exotic.” – Job De Wit
