Types of music in Thailand including Lao


Recommended Posts

I would love to know (and see samples) of the different types of music in Thailand/Isaan.

 

I can think of 3 but I will get the ball rolling with 1.

 

"Mor Lam"

After much searching I come to the conclusion she is refering to the string lute.

 

"The two stringed bowed lute, the so-duang (track 16) was a common instrument in various ensembles from toward the end of this period until today in classical and court music. Born in 1917, the female performer on this track Benjarong Thanakoset, is from a musical family, and was already teaching by the age of sixteen. She is now considered Thailand’s greatest player of bowed string instruments.

 

Other instruments are believed to have originated with the Thai themselves, including the double reed instrument the pi. The pi phat, consisting of the pi together with melodic and rhythmic percussion instruments, is one of the earliest types of ensemble, represented on this album by Fong Nam (track 12). Under the guidance of American Bruce Gaston, Fong Nam are both the custodians of rare classical pieces, and known for modernizing the traditions in experimental styles. The Hong Nang Suite is traditional Buddhist funeral music, instead of a sorrowful nature it’s lively sound acts as an antidote for the grieving mourners."

"Traditional morlam ensembles also feature the phin, a stringed lute, somewhat similar to the guitar, with between two and four strings, but typically three. Track 3, features a solo performance on the phin, by Surasak Donchia, a virtuoso on the instrument."

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
