Album Description

Lak Lan (ลักลั น) derives from a Thai word that can be translated as juxtaposition, dichotomy, or paradox. Although these qualities can be seen as incongruous, eccentric, or confusing, the concept of Lak-Lan opens up room for an exchange of dialogue - a gap for creative opportunities; a temporal moment to investigate new possibilities between spaces. Lak-Lan serves an impetus to unify ideas that are seemingly opposite, define new directions, and provide meaning to Kengkarnka’s voice as an artist. His compositional practice is rooted in African American derived rhythms infused with the aesthetics of Thai music. These compositions investigate themes of contradiction in identity, thoughts, and feelings - elements he has adopted, captured and expressed through improvisation in the compositions and arrangements of this album.
