Spool’s Out Radio #74: Phong Tran

Phong Tran is a musician and cataloguer of South Asian materials at the Library of Congress, living in the Washington DC area. In addition to his musical projects Halo Valley and The Shouts from the Sea, Phong is part of the Maple House Collective which organizes shows at Rhizome. You can find him on twitter as @boxwalla.

For this week’s show, Phong has made a killer mix for us: “These are from tapes in my collection. All Indic folk and ‘light’ classical forms. There’s a touch of Carnatic classical in the Rajeshwari Padmanabhan track. It’s like travelling back in time to when I was there and finding these tapes.”
