Prakaiphet Sonhong

Ah, the warmth is finally here, windows are opening, the trees are exploding and the girls are sprouting legs…but wait a second, NOT TOO FAST NOW. Ease on in, and to help you do so here are ten selections from Prakaiphet Sonhong’s album Rung Chaeng Saeng Thong. This is some seriously deep Thai country music, complete with yodeling, some funky drumming (cham chak nang), horns aplenty, and swaying rhythms that send your head bobbing off of its stand and into the ether (sao na ya ba krung & nak phleng khat rak). Check it out below.

Thank you to Peter over at MONRAKPLENGTHAI blog for his assistance in the transliteration of the titles of the cassette. Do yourself a favor and visit his site!

Today we bring you songs by the Thai singer SONCHAI MEKHWICHIAN from his album On Chan. Powerful, driving tunes mixed with pretty ballads. My favorites are “Siang So Sang Sao” and “Sao Yu Ban Dai.” Sonchai has a very nice voice, in a higher register like that of a songbird. A very special thanks to Peter who writes the MONRAKPLENGTHAI blog for his generous assistance in transliteration of the name and titles of the cassette. Check out his attractive and informative blog.
