About Us

Saw Peep plays intercultural music from the Silk Road, South and Southeast Asia, the Mediterranean, and new compositions for intercultural ensembles, hybrid groups, and blended instrumentation.

Formed on January 27, 2017 (as Sulh Ensemble), the group formally changed their name during the pandemic to reflect its focus on the folk and composed music of Asian and Asian diasporan composers. The name, Saw Peep (ซอปี๊บ), is from a type of bowed fiddle made of a large metal can in the Isan region in Northeast Thailand where artistic director, Jon Silpayamanant, was born.
