Lao Pop Music Artists !


Mouky new DVDFinally we’ve got what we have been hanging out for.  Contrary to the original plan, experiment with punk, heavy hardcore metal has seen the light of day.  Pop and rock are in.  After long inactivity of his hard rock band, the Bohaln, where Mouky is the lead vocalist, he has been working on his solo project.  This will be a good start for 2009 with the release of this beautiful album, whose secret was a combination of smart and hard work, and single minded determination to produce the best Lao pop/rock song ever.  Brilliant “Mouky  Phong-Oudom Love song” is a recycle of classic love songs from the past to modern, cool and contemporary pop/rock songs.

“Mouky  Phong-Oudom Love song”  is a contemporary pop/rock with flair.   Mouky added acoustic, rock, string, attitude & pushed the beautiful sound into spaces where few of our small city contemporaries dared inhabit.  His presentation of beautiful pop/rock songs demonstrates powerful force with sensitivity, conveying an unpretentious masculinity without hiding vulnerability.  His expression of desire, passion, and lust gave the sound an emotional dept.  This is so cool, polished, elegant, energetic, razor-sharp pop rock sound album.

Expect this album to gain Mouky a whole host of new fans (even more fans than he gained from The Bohaln).  His transformation from hardcore punk heavy metal to pop/rock artist has completed.  Mouky rocks!  More info >>>
