AllMusic Review by Jason Ankeny

Khamvong Insixiengmai and his ensemble are prominently featured on Bamboo Voices: Folk Music from Laos, one of the few recorded documents of the nation's musical traditions currently on the market. The music is playful and joyous, most notable for its use of the khene, a free-reed bamboo instrument similar in sound to the harmonica.
