Greg is a sound engineer who is working hard to try to save some of the endangered music of Asia. We met on Ko Phayam, Thailand, where he’s spent a lot of time with the Moken people (aka “Sea Gypsies”) who have been living on shore since the tsunami swept away their boats in 2004. Greg leads small groups on trips in India, Nepal, Laos, and elsewhere, recording songs and languages that are in danger of being lost forever.
