Mai Pen Rai

Mai Pen Rai - Makam

Mai Pen Rai is a music video for Makam.
Commissioned by Dekmantel.

Mai Pen Rai is a track from Makam’s forthcoming album Than Sadet. In Thai, Than Sadet means ‘Royal River’ and Mai Pen Rai means ‘everything will be okay’. Using these elements, directors Mr. Boonstra and Bas van de Poel, envisioned a river of dancing figures. That’s how choreographer Matthew Pawlicki-Sinclair from House of Makers and his dancers became involved. Matthew made a choreography that, in combination with light photography, would create a ‘river' of movement. A mysterious figure was added to the mix, making the river flow into a crescendo.


“Just flow along with the river and everything will be okay.” NOWNESS

"Dekmantel delivers visionary Makam video."
