Journey Without Maps brings you vintage, rare, and underground global music from uncharted sonic territories. Every week, I unearth a new musical landscape: African soul & funk, Latin rhythms, eastern European electronica, Middle East psychedelic, Asian surf rock … and more.

In the early 1960s the west coast of the US spawned reverb-drenched rock and roll. Surf guitars reached Asian shores, fueling a craze of guitar-based beat music. In this episode, we'll take a plunge into the instrumental surf rock of Asia: Japan, Malaysia, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Pakistan, and other unlikely centers for these vintage sounds.
