Rock Concert - Yangon (Burma)
Description: Burma is more well known for the soft murmurs of Buddhist mantras than for the broken voice of its pop stars. Yet, Yangon?s rock scene is more than 30 years old. It started as a tiny underground phenomenon, a handful of musicians worshipped by the children of the country?s elite. Then computers arrived, piracy took over, and Burmese rock left its cocoon to reach a wider audience. For one dollar, even the most modest households can now afford a copy of the latest album. As the success of rock n?roll reached cruising altitude, Burmese pop and hip hop took off, and in their wake a myriad of amateur bands dream of adding their name to the growing list of Burma?s music legends: Iron Cross, Emperor, Big Bag?
