Lewis Pragasm new releases for 2021

On the 21st May 2021 we will issue three new tracks from the South East Asian percussion supergroup Asiabeat. The band under the leadership of master drummer/percussionist Lewis Pragasm, chalked up considerable success in the 1990s and 2000s with their special brand of Jazz-Rock.  Their releases were mostly instrumental. Now Lewis has come up with a new chapter in the project. He has produced several vocal tracks to add to a forty year anniversary album due later this year. The introduction to the project will be a three track EP with two versions of a well known song from the region and a vocal version of one of the band's popular releases from Asiabeat's back catalogue.
