Luk Thung, or Thai Country Music, is really popular (in Isan and beyond) and is even getting international Hipster appeal. The Thai soldier in the video below looks so into it he cannot contain himself. Good on ya, express yourself mate!
You know when a song lingers around in your mind, whether you want it or not? I’ve got a bad case of it, with the song Flick by Thai singer Kratae Rsiam, at least with the catchy horn hook. If sampled in the Western hemisphere, it might result in a summertime commercial chart topper. Wait, I’ll never get rid of it, in that case. Never mind 🙂 Oh, btw, the singer is coming to Bredene (Belgium) on August 18th, 2016, the evening before the yearly Thai market.
