ISSAN TRANS

  • Psychedelic perceptions in ethnographic fusion.

    Chaotic human perceptions turn fractal human expressions in this ethnographic collective fusion piece which transcends transexuality the Issan way, with a Bangkok twang by Crissalida.

    The Northern Thailand traditional and culturally rich region of Issan gets a modern kick through a basking music band with a charismatic leader, in this caleidoscopic view which allows glimpses beyond colour and shape. ©2012 Little Bubble of Laughter
