Located within the borders of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos, the Golden Triangle is a remote region of Southeast Asia at the crossroads of Chinese and Indian influences. On the outskirts of steep mountain passes and of its foothills covered with luxuriant jungles live peoples of Chinese origin isolated from the rest of the world that François Jouffa recorded in an area known for its dangerousness, in the late 1970s, on the Cold War and traffic drugs background. This sound recording, here presented on a double CD, is a rare audio testimony which lists the different types of music, the songs and the music instruments of the Meo, the Lisu, the Shan, the Lahu Nyi, the Yao, the Akha and the Karen Sgaw peoples, the traditions and customs of which are very ancient.
