We have the world premiere of the latest songs from Ketsana. They are Why Did You Do What You Did and ForGet Laos Not. These songs will be in her seventh album.

Why Did You Do What You Did is the latest single from this Lao thrilling super star at her best, Ketsana. It is a song that intimately seduces listener with considerate lyrics, soulful melody and beautiful instrumentation. This song is written by Ketsana herself. It’s in English.

ForGet Laos Not is another master piece work of art from Lao Michelangelo, Ketsana. This is one of Lao classic songs which has gone through a cosmetic surgery by Ketsana. The song has been stretching, digitalising, colouring bits there, improvising bits here, darkening there, eventually forming an impressive and highly polished Lao dance song ever produced.

Listen to the music and you’ll know WHY she is the hottest Laotians’ pop diva.
