The electric phin — a modern adaption of a traditional stringed instrument — is an essential part of any festivity in the villages of northeast Thailand. Inspired by the introduction of American music during the Vietnam War, electric phin bands offer a unique — some say psychedelic — take on folk culture. We look at the history of the instrument, and the pioneering musicians who hooked up a song-and-dance revolution.
