My dear friend Eugene Fauntleroy is travelling around the world. I know him as an entrepreneur, a dj, a bon vivant; sometimes a dandy, always someone worth engaging with. I recently found that he’s established a Soundcloud page for a set of field recordings he’s creating: http://soundcloud.com/gene-lroy/tracks

There’s quite a few things happening here: Qawwalli vs bhangra (a natural combination); street sounds from Bangkok. My favorite is this track from Kuala Lumpur…

Somehow it appeals to everything I love about street music.
