ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The long-awaited second offering of elephants in the Thai jungle playing specially designed musical instruments. The Thai Elephant Orchestra was co-founded by Richard Lair of the Thai Elephant Conservation Center in Lampang and performer/composer Dave Soldier. This CD is more tailored for children than the first, and explores the far reaches of what the ellies now perform, including lots of traditional Thai music, and even Beethoven (the Pastorale Symphony) and Hank Williams (Kaw-liga). Guest appearances by dance composer David First, cellist Jamie Seiber, pin pia player Smithitham, bamoolin player Muangling, saxophone sensation Matusuda Madoka and more. But still lots and lots of pure elephant music with almost no editing or studio tricks sure to please their fans.

amasing music, amasing elephants, amasing recording
as a fan of south east asian music i found this recording to be amasing. i find it interesting that these elephants seem to play the music of their native land with ease as well as improvise with in the music. just like humans, they were taught how to make the sounds and once they learned they are able to play simply by listening and as we humans some times do, play by ear.

Burned out from the usual, bored with the Britney Spears, Dave Matthews and Matchbox 20 clones popping up everywhere? Here's an album to shake everything up as well as impress your friends. Elephants playing Thai music, Beethoven and even Hank Williams. We all know that elephants are one of the most intelligent animals on the planet with intriguing emotionality, daunting memory and all that- but playing music? Well, why not?!
