‘What emerges is something new, blues of our time. Sometimes haunting, sometimes driving, the mandoline and slide guitar make supple love, anguished and questioning in the moment, but ultimately reaffirming the brotherhood of all” 

Acclaimed folk-blues album 13 Samsen by Dulysit Srabua and Bert Deivert has been remastered and reissued on vinyl and 25 karat gold CD.

The album was initially recorded and produced in Thailand in 2012, featuring the great Charlie Musselwhite and Nga Caravan as special guests, and many other Thai and international musicians, including Thai blues legend Chai the Blues and Ped Bluesman.

Dulysit “Pong” Srabua is one of the best blues guitarists in Thailand, who has been active on the music scene with many different bands for more than 25 years and published numerous albums of various genres. He is also the owner of the famous AdHere 13th Blues Bar that has been attracting blues lovers from all over the world for the last 17 years, where he plays every Friday and Saturday with his band, Banglumpoo Blues Company.
