He has achieved the most amazing fusion of art and sound from his latest experiment I ever heard. This will be another indication of how darn good his or Lao music will be. No doubt, this album will be instantly powerful, intricately compelling, has immerse longevity and his unique artistic statement.
At last we have Joey Sisouvath third album. As documented that last week we interviewed him for our TV section. His brand new songs uploaded. If you like what you hear then grab them from music store now. More info Rating:
This Hip Hop song from Lao Crimino will surely set a new bench mark for Lao Hip Hop and will become most talked about song of all time in the history of modern Lao music. This group of Lao Crimino will conquer and lay claim their Hip Hop territory. There is no shocking rhymes here but smooth, beautiful and perfect .....Pix of Lao Crimino More info
LAO FOLK MUSIC KNOWN AS LUM VONG
Lumvong is popular Lao traditional dance where people form a circle pairing with opposite sex and literally dance in circle to Lao traditional folk music. Women dance on the outer and males are in the inner circle. Together they groove slowly following the smooth and happy Lao beat by moving three steps forward then turn facing their partners and walking back and forth toward another. Their hands remain at above chest height making all sort of silly gestures but somewhat graceful only can be interpret by the dancers themselves. Steps are repeated until fully sweat or song ends.
A classic hit song for special occasion namely wedding day; this is Som Lod Som Hug by Manit Phiengvongsa. He is one of known country music artists living in America and one of my favourite.
CLASSIC COUNTRY HIT SONG
It’s another one of country hit songs.It’s a sad love song but it’s obviously telling a true tale story of ours.Sometimes, we do need to set our priority right.It’s whether love or money.Sadly, many opt for the easy way out.This is a story. It’s nicely done.
Come & listen to Lao classic songs from the past re-recorded by Manit Phienvonga. They are Meaung Summ and Phadak Conhigh.
Country music may falter behind popular music lately but there are still more country artists around than pop/rock artists combined. Only recently that pop/rock overtook country music in Laos as the main stream.
Pop and rock also explode across borders to neighbouring countries. Evidently, there are tons of rewards for those who have become famous. For example money, travels across Laos and overseas, be on television, get mob my teen fans, or even get featured here at laopress.com.
Now we see many Lao youngsters arm themselves with pens, papers, guitars, microphones, keyboards and drum machines. And many senior politicians in their eighties now ponder of switching career by quitting politics to form rock band.
Laos has made many headlines across the world in regards to the surge of popular music & Lao artists. This is good stuff.
As for me I am still the same guy. What is wrong here? My taste of music remain unchanged. I still love Lao traditional folk music known as Lum, country music and then pop/rock.
He has been overloaded with works and has been touring across the USA. He is just getting better and better, isn’t he? How good is this guy? He always seems to come up with hit after hit. You can be proud of this fine Lao singer. Where-ever we are in this world, we, Laotian always support and love one another. [song]
