this week, some groovy lam phaen from mr. thongmai mali! coming from doi inthanon's circle of stars in the 80s, thongmai was one of the earliest and chief practitioners of the lam phaen style, which seems to have been the link between 70s lam phloen, which first wedded traditional lam with international pop influences, and lam sing, the manic, racy non-stop party music of the 90s. lam phaen added some speed and raunch to the former, setting pace for the brilliant excesses to come. it was also alleged by one source, at least, to have been influenced by the music and/or speech patterns of the kui people in sisaket province. is there any truth to this? who knows? enjoy!

Hello, I have been following your blog for some time - it is awesome! I love mostly molam and luk thung isaan from the 70ties and have started a blog on that a few months ago. I use vinyl as source, and I would like to add you to my blogroll... may I? My blog is here:
Cheers from Bangkok! Jan
