khana tapphonwathit: piphat mon

artist: คณะ ทับพรวาทิต (khana tapphonwathit)
album: ปี่พาทย์มอญ (piphat mon)
01. พม่าใหญ่ (phama yai)
02. พม่าเล็ก (phama lek)
03. พม่ากลาง (phama klang)
04. อรุณนิมิต (arun nimit)

this week, some great mon-style piphat music! rather than being associated specifically with any of the numerous mon communities in thailand or across the border in burma's mon state, piphat mon refers to a style of ensemble that has long since been incorporated into the larger thai classical repertoire, and is heard most often in funeral ceremonies. our players on this cassette are the tapphonwathit ensemble, led here by national artist kalong phuengthongkham, performing a selection of mostly burmese-accented compositions. beautiful music, enjoy!
