Under the name KINK GONG you’ll find two activities: the first one is to record ethnic minority music mostly in south-east Asia, the second is to transform, collage, recompose the original recordings into experimental soundscapes. KINK GONG is a record label dedicated to unknown ethnic minority music and their mutant electronic transformations, for the last 20 years.

Kink Gong’s music catalogue is a collection of 160 albums of ethnic minority music from Tanzania, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, China and Thailand since 1999. Experimental soundscape compositions are based on raw recordings, released by Kwanyin (Beijing, China), Atavistic (Chicago, USA), Tiger Gong Ppt Stembogen (Paris, France), Discrepant (London, UK), Arte Tetra (Bologna, Italy) and Akuphone (Paris, France) since 2008.
