isaan music download
I think I would have felt considerable surprise if a search for “Isaan music download” at Amazon.com actually turned up any MP3s of genuine music from the Isaan Region of Thailand. But here’s what I found.
To lead off:
Label: Van Pennington
Copyright: (C) 2008 Van Pennington
Duration: 3:28 minutes
Genres: Children’s Music
“Surat” is the Thai nickname of Russell Van Pennington who has resided in Bangkok Thailand for the past 17 years. Surat worked in Thailand as a Christian Volunteer reaching out to youth at risk and sharing the Love of Christ with them through music.
Surat played in venues around Thailand ranging from bars in the red light districts of Pattaya, to detention centers, schools, hotels, shopping centers, and outdoor concert venues. His songs are varied and include such genres as rock, country, folk, and Thai Isaan style music.
Most of the songs are sung in the Thai language, but some are a combination of Thai and English. If you have ever lived in Thailand long enough to have a basic understanding of the culture and language, then you will be sure to enjoy the songs, “Hello my Name’s Surat”, “Yim Yai”, and “Sue Mia Chan Mai Dai”
“Hello my name’s Surat!” Here’s my music! I hope you like it!
I am not entirely sure what the “O2 B” signifies, unless it’s the group he performed with while producing the album. Keep in mind: that is just a guess.
Is it stretching things too much to claim that this is the same Russell Pennington? Another “Russ” seems to be writing about him in this 2006 blog post titled Counting Conversations: Pii Chai. Also, this old write-up from the Spring of 2002 speaks of him: Good News for Thailand. I just don’t know if these Russ Penningtons are definitely the guy who is featured in that album.
The next “Isaan” that displayed on Amazon was by a “Moscow-based musical technician Maguett” (see the Trebuchet review Maguett — Twilight EP). The song is definitely electronic — you can hear it at what appears to be the website of Maguette. Curiously enough, Amazon has the MP3 priced at 89¢ and 99¢ — why anyone would choose to pay the extra 10¢ to download the same song is beyond me:
The third Isaan MP3 that came up is apparently a song called Learning Isaan (Lao) off an album called Thai Hit Songs Vol. 1 – Thailand Fever:
Label: Thailand Fever
Copyright: (C) 2009 Thailand Fever
Duration: 4:22 minutes
Genres: New Age
The fourth and final item that came up was Isaan Spirit by Jaya Satria:
Label: Origins Zen Media
Copyright: (p) Alter ego music
Duration: 2:52 minutes
So…more electronic music.
I would expect that if specific music was searched for — such as luk thung or lukthung — other offerings would be presented. I was just curious about the term I used. I would be willing to explore this further, but I have spent several hours working on this post, and it is essential that I turn my attention to more mundane matters. Perhaps I will post on this topic again before too terribly long.

Thai Traditional Song on Phin
Uploaded by soulofbass on Feb 27, 2010
This is a performance of a Thai Traditional song on a Phin with a backing drum track.
The video features footage from a trip I recently took to Northeastern Thailand.
I started to learn how to play Phin at the beginning of this year. It has three strings. The most challenging aspect of learning how to play Phin in my opinion is getting used to the Thai melodies and rythms which sound counter intuitive to my western mind.
Also I am wearing tradition Northeastern Thai garments. I hope you enjoy this performance if you’re interested to hear what a modern song featuring this instrument sounds like download my latest album “Divide” here: http://soulofbass.weebly.com and listen to the song CAS
