In stock

Category: Tags: ,



“Ethnic Sonorities” is Culture Shot’s first attempt to record the core pieces we have worked on creating since the foundation of the band. The main goal was to produce a tangible representation of our live performances for our awesome audiences to take home and share.

The recording project started in 2015 but they have to and flow rearrangement, re-recording, remixing to refine the final products EP contained 4 songs, 2 songs sang in Penang Hokkien dialect, “Song of the Streets” & “Mountain’s Story”, another 2 songs are rearranged traditional tune from Nusantara, “Ulek Mayang” & ‘Rasa Sayang”. We did our very best to make sure the EP sounded as natural as possible, our improvisatory and playful character being a key ingredient. Second best way to enjoy a moment with us!
