Everything's so much better when it's modernized! I like the English translation even better than the squiggly letters, Phoem Khlaibanleng & his International Mixed Mahori Orchestra. Thanks goodness it's mixed Mahori, I don't think I could handle it straight up. The music is slightly off kilter--I like the description on the blog, "Xavier Cugat Goes Gamelan". Better still, some of the horns sound out of tune with the rest of the orchestra, so it sort of wobbles when it cha chas.
