    My friend and I will be taking a one month journey through Isaan this January. We will (hopefully) be doing recordings of local musicians, nightclub performances and radio broadcasts. We'll be hitting:

    Khorat
    Roi Et
    Mukdahan
    Khemmerat
    Amnat Charoen
    Ubon Ratchathani
    Surin

    Any recommendations of other Isaan towns to check out for good music? Any other advice for Isaan travelling?
    Thanks so much!

    In Mukdahan Norees is a must see and I would recommend you also go to The Picking Cowboy and check out Howard doing "Killing the Blues". Nobody, not Robert Plant or Chris Issak - nobody can touch him on this song. Drop me a line here on travelfish and I can steer you around.

    Thanks madmac! I'll be sure to let you know when we arrive.
    Another question: do you know when the Mukdahan Tribal Festival is happening this year?

    I've never even heard of the Mukdahan Tribal Festival, but that sort of thing doesn't interest me much. Let me ask around.
