we're back again this week with some beautiful sounds from isaan! mae chawiwan, a national artist of thailand, is one of the northeast's most fondly regarded singers. she was born in ubon ratchathani to a family of farmers, and studied lam with her father from a young age. through her strong, melodious voice and clever lyricism, she became the reigning singer & composer of the artform, called "queen of molam" by many. though she experimented with western funk & rock sounds at various points in her career, this tape captures her in minimal fashion, solo voice with khaen backing. at present, chawiwan teaches at khon kaen university and still performs. enjoy!

I ran across a Thai tape on this blog. You might drop the author a note about it. It is awfully good stuff, incidentally. http://aretheseyourlunches.blogspot.com/2010/03/illegible-thai-mania.html
Thanks for all the great posts!

thanks for the tip, always glad to help out!

and yeah, i have been gradually moving all the old posts from sendspace over to mediafire, but it's a pretty time-consuming process, so i've gone ahead & skipped forward to buddha bless as per request.. you should find a working mediafire link there now! enjoy!
