this week, more from molam-luk thung star mae hongthong! hongthong dao'udon, as her stage-name suggests, hails from isan's udon thani province. a star of local temple fairs since childhood, she was picked up by luk thung star siphrai chaiphra to join his troupe in bangkok at age 10. she had a number of hits penned by songwriter doi inthanon, toured extensively throughout the country and even landed some film roles. in the 90's, however, she tragically lost her voice after a thyroid operation. since then, she had been working steadily at regaining it, hosting a popular radio show in her home town meanwhile. unfortunately, following the red shirt protests in 2010, ms. hongthong was found guilty of using her radio platform to incite listeners to riot, resulting in the burning of the provincial town hall. i've been unable to find any information about her since her incarceration, so if anyone has some please let me know! otherwise, enjoy the music!
