Let us continue our musical journey to South and Far East Asia, and see what that brings. 

We've just had a Japanese thread, and there's a Japanese blog so, no reason to include this country here.
- And like in the African thread, not all of the musicians have to be of Asian origin - as I see it.

My own harvest from this part of world is so far:

       L. Shankar  (India)  -  Song for everyone   (1985, Jazz Fusion)

       Trilok Gurtu  (India)  -  The Glimpse   (1996, Jazz Fusion)

       Garbarek & Khan (India/Pakistan) - Ragas and Sagas (1992, Hindustani Classical Music / ECM Jazz)

       Cold Fairyland  (China)  2005 Live  (2006, Progressive Rock)

       Cold Fairyland (China) Seeds On The Ground (2007, Chinese Folk Music / Progressive Folk)

       Lin Di & Cool Zone  (China) - Ten Days In Magic Land  (2003, Progressive Folk-Rock)

       Lin Di  (China)  -  Bride in Legend   (2004, Progressive Folk)

       Guruh Gipsy  (Indonesia)  -  Guruh Gipsy   (1977, Progressive Rock)


The countries, I mention, refers primarily to the origins of the music.

And I hope, you'll enjoy it! Smile

So, I have by now changed my OP to include South Asia. Ok?

East Asia to me immediately connotes Chakutia, Kamchatka, Magadan Oblast, Sakhalin, Khabarovsk Krai, Primorsky Krai, Japan, Korea, Manchuria, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, and coastal China, not Southeast Asia and certainly not India! 

Of the few I know, two of my favorites are most definitely:
Cicada (Taiwan)
Jambinai (South Korea)

and maybe, SIU2 (Hong Kong) and Hai Qing and Batzorig Vaanchig & Auli from Mongolia

So, I have by now changed my OP to include South Asia - to be precise. Ok?

But it's greater with "South and Far East Asia", as it's more including than East Asia (according to Wikipedia) so, I've changed again my OP to that.

I'd like to tell here a little about my first "meeting" with the Chinese Lin Di and the band Cold Fairyland, which she was the leading member of, because even it happend about 15 years ago, it was such a great experience.
It happend one very warm summer day, and I think, I was searching for Chinese bands on my computer, but anyway, I found a concert with Cold Fairyland on a Dutch site with concerts from Paradiso in Amsterdam. And from the very first moment of this about 40 minutes concert, I was just entirely speechlees.
I wish my English was better to be able to describe what I saw, heard and felt because it was so great and moved me so much. This outstanding performance of black dressed musicians playing their mix of heavy and dark, like King Crimson (Red) influenced but yet Symphonic Prog, and Chinese Folk music, using among other instruments pipa, Chinese kind of acoustic (traditional) "guitar"/lute, and electric cello, adding Lin Di's very emotional and beautiful vocal. - That was almost love at the first sight.
Then, I must say, the video I saw of this concert was very well shut and edited, like a piece of art itself, and the sound quality on it was exceptional good - likewise on my computer speakers. 

At that time, I wrote music articles and reviews for a Danish Hi-Fi magazine so actually, I wrote a review of this concert, and I contacted Cold Fairyland for their releases - but that is another story. Smile

Jambinai's Onda (2019) is a very well known album on RYM.

I could be wrong, but I donít think you should be thankful. Iím pretty sure this comment of awe is in regard to how awful this thread is, rather than how awesome. Potentially even worse, but definitely as bad, as the Eastern Europe thread, and for the same reasons. Itís funny how you accused someone of being racist when they obviously werenít, when you come far closer yourself - though Iím sure you do it innocently and without malice.

Once again you have grouped together a huge range of different countries, cultures and musical traditions, in a fashion that could easily be viewed as insulting and/or offensive. I assume, but could be wrong, that the ďwowĒ comment is simply because you have not taken onboard any of the criticism within the Eastern Europe thread, have not learnt your lesson, and have put forward another grouping of countries. It would appear you couldnít even get the the geography right this time, from earlier comments. Well done for taking that on the chin, and editing your topic and OP to reflect the broader geography, but geez - now the geographical area is even greater, and has an even greater number of cultures, languages, traditions and instruments.

For example, the music just within the Indian subcontinent is incredibly diverse, and certainly unlike the music of Japan, which is likely to be the next most known country for music in these fora. (In fact, Japan has had more than one thread dedicated just to it before, and is one of many countries within this region that could easily have their own post, rather than be grouped together with countries that share nothing other than your grouping them together.

I think itís admirable that you are trying to be as active as you are in the forum, and there is a lot of merit in finding out what people like from various regions of the world - but please (please) try and make them smaller, and more sensible. In both the Eastern Europe thread and (before you edited it) this one, you have included countries that just logically have no connection to the larger grouping, and are asking people to draw from a pool that while it might not seem large to you, if you are not greatly familiar with it, is simply too vast and too differing, to realistically make a list.

I know you are not going to find this comment constructive, and Iím sorry about that. But I hope you can at least understand where I am coming from.

^I don't know why this has to be so problematic. Yes its a huge range of different countries that don't share the same musical traditions obviously - but they do have in common that most westeners know very little of their music.

If we can have favorite european prog or music-posts, which we obviously can - although Portugal, Finland and Albania share just as little - or less musical traditions  than Korea, Mongolia and Taiwan do... a favorite South and Far East Asia albums should be ok as well. It's just a way of getting to know some new music, isn't it? Curiosity and openness is a good thing, so don't please make it into something bad just because people struggle a little with the geography.

Nick, all I can tell you is the same I said in connection to the East European thread. You're right about the principles but totally unrealistic in relation to the PA reality. That is surely confirmed by the results of the East European thread, and seems already to be confirmed by this thread. 
There's absolutely not enough interest among PA members for what you have in mind - myself including, for not to talk about who should make all these threads you have in mind. YOU??

So, you're absolutely right, I don't find your comment constructive, and just please, GET OF MY NECK!

Something else, Nick, this behaviour of yours can easily make you troubles on PA. 
Is that what you want?
