Lao Country Music Artists !


Here is one hip Lao country song presented by gorgeous country songstress P. Khounthong.  “Yabaeng kamkondum” means “Look over My Way” is from her Zyvid Tongsue (meaning That’s Live) album.  It’s an excellent song which sounds very relaxing and enjoyable.  And the video is hip cooler and very pleasant to the eyes.  Love It.  More info>>>    


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.  More info >>>     


Many Laotians reside in many corners of the world.  For us, the world is just getting smaller.   Many wise expatriates do make trips back to soak in Lao easy life style and experience the relaxing environments they once used to live.  For many youngsters who were born in foreign lands wishing to walk on Lao soil and visit their motherland, they too make pilgrimage.  And there are many who are unable to travel back for what ever reasons may be.  This is a song written by one who is homesick.  It’s called “Konkibarn” meaning “Home Away From Home” performed by country singer, Ponvilay Duangmany.  For more info>>>   

This is another excellent song by beautiful hot Pink, "Yaluem Banhao"     


Here is one hip Lao country song presented by gorgeous country songstress P. Khounthong.  “Yabaeng kamkondum” means “Look over My Way” is from her Zyvid Tongsue (meaning That’s Live) album.  It’s an excellent song which sounds very relaxing and enjoyable.  And the video is hip cooler and very pleasant to the eyes.  Love It.  More info>>>    


Here is another excellent Lao country song by an artist goes by the name of Numzok Xayleuxa.  It's Phaohug Phaokoy meaning Right Here Waiting.  I love this music video.  It captures a simple life in a peaceful and magnificent country side, as suggested by lyric of this beautiful & fabulous country song.  It's so refreshing.  Nothing else matters.  It's so cool!  


One World One Dream is a motto for Olympic Games 2008 currently stage in Beijing, China.   Find out here whether Dream is really in black, white or colour at The Official Website of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games 


This is a song by Suthin, a folkish Lao country rock song.  It's about a blackish dude from southern province known as the land of Champa falling for a sweet talking girl from the North.  This is so true that the most romantic, generous, fun, poetic and honest type from the south almost every time hopelessly head over heels in love with Northern beauty.  Take me for instance, a self promoted, unconventional, traditional moron seems so cool as ice and melt every time in hot girl's lips.  One problem though, can't talk...More info>>>>        


"Environment" has become trendy and most talk-about subject politically.  Whether you believe in it or not, there will be price to pay thrusting upon us. This is a global scam on earthy scale for quick buck.  Lao country is still green, clean, flesh, clear and simple on a stunning sunny and blue sky day.  This is just purely for demonstrating an absolute beautiful Lao country at its best by Southida.  It's Hugkon Zuesor meaning Loving You More. This song is relaxing, simple, nice and yet without sacrificing emotional content. I must admit that I could be biased after watching a gorgeous model starring in this music video.  Her name is Sao Malyvanh and she rightfully personifies Lao country - simple, clean, flesh and beautiful.  That is hot.   More info>>>>   


Seepenbaur meaning Be My Baby is a folkish Lao song with a play on words.  It’s clean and maybe a bit erotic if you take in literally.  But this is not a typical Lum anyway where a singer usually sings with a simple melody accompanied by traditional folk instruments but it’s bass up, electrified and amplified modern folk rock song. And it is no way a sleazy, over-stimulated but a sexy, well-crafted, well-arranged song followed by extremely super hot and beautiful dancers featured in this music video.  It’s a nice mixed of real traditional Lao folk with modern, real electronic sounds and instruments.

Pink is hot. She has real clean and flesh vocal.  This is a masterful of performance.  Watching this playful music video, it’s breathtaking.  I found myself focusing, concentrating, and dancing to modern folk music sound.  This song is extremely good.  Well, I may be biased but forgive me if I can’t resist over looking at those beautiful dancers.  More info>>>> 


Her eight albums are available in America, Canada, France, Australia and Laos. She had also toured all these countries and had performed and recorded with the greatest of Lao singers in her time.  

She has travelled extensively, no doubt that many sound samples emerged from such travels.  Her most memorable performance was in Vientiane at Laos Year 2000 Celebration.  Her style of music is mainly techno dance and contemporary Lao country music.  This is one of them.  Her name is Phone Phoummithone.  More info>>>>   


Here is another hot music video presented by young up and coming rising star, Ken with absolutely hot and sweet dancers showing off great legs.  Wow!  Yakaur Penfan meaning "Can I Be Your Man" is a hot and sweet country song by handsome Ken.  This is another typical good country music.  It's just liked a typical Lao food.  It is so darn hot.  Andy is a typical Lao guy who loves delicious Lao food.  


Here is another superb  music video demonstrating how our Lao folks entertaining ourselves for generations.  This is an absolute highly competent presentation of Lao folk music at its best.  It's undeniably irresistible. The sound is simple, pure and smooth.  As for this Morlum, she has a serviceable voice and stunt looking. Traditional instruments use exclusively to bring out the Lao beautiful sound.  This is another type of Lao folk music.   This is great, traditional Lao affair with a modern veneer that you can dance joyfully to.  More info>>>  


Here is a classic Lao song called Kularb Pakxan meaning Rose of Pakxan presented by one Thai cool country artist named Id Fly.  I was introduced to his songs by my ex-girlfriend.  It's a song written for my friend's mother who I run into regularly at temple during Lao festival.  Paksan is a city from southern province of Laos best known for having beautiful people especially girl! 

Here is another version jazzed & sexed up by Lao diva, Ketsana.  This is a live version performed at Vientiane concert hall.

This is another version by laopress.com.  It's sort of reggaeton


Here is another sweet, mood elevating song by Pink hot and sexy country rock artist goes by the name of Pink Rassamee.  She has many hot and steamy songs such as Seepenbaur, Yalumbanlao, Tenkin & Lumkin, and many more.....This is a classic and  beautiful country song by this gorgeous singer called Thanghug Thanghaang meaning Lover Lane.  More info>>>>


Willy Denzey is French RNB singer.  His parents are from Laos.  He  got nominate for Best Male Artist of the year in France, In what year - was it in 2005, 2006 or 2007?


Another great live performance of Lao classical folk song known as Lum by great band.  This video also shows how our Lao spirits are being used to glamorise Lao folk music by demonstrating that Morlum is as hip as pop/ rock, techno or hip hop music. For me, I am a fan of Lum. Watch the hand of the guy playing lead guitar.   More info>>>>


Growing up watching lots of Indian movies, naturally there are some Indian influences in our music.  This is a song by a versatile rock band Konla Vongsamphanh.  More info>>>>>


Here is another Lao classical folk song from famous Lao songstress.  More info>>>>>>


These are the latest pop songs passed to me by radio disc jockey lady friend of mine.   They are soulful Kaur meaning Please and another beautiful ballad love song called Yakmefan meaning Want to Love Somebody.  Kaur Yakmefan are for those lonely hearts out there who wishfully want to fall for the right mind one and click!  These are true great pop songs. 


Song From The Heart is a song by Ongkane Sombounkhun.  He is from Lao Art Media.  It is from "1 Nydoungchai" album meaning "One and Only".  It released a few years ago.  This song is written by Vixay Kyvongxay.  Feel free to shake off stress or show off your cha cha cha.
