Chao Leh – Punknomads

For 18 years “Speichelbroiss” have been making noise in the Bavarian backwoods. With “Chao Leh” they have written a German-Punk-Hit for Asia. Their song about the sea nomads called Chao Leh tells us about a clan that doesn’t seem to fit in our modern society. It’s the song they’re celebrated across all Asia for.

This is a film about the everyday life of a band on a DIY-low-budget tour through Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. A film about the daily routine in a foreign country and exoticism right on your doorstep.
