Mor Lam Radio

It is unfortunate that websites like Last.fm insist on a visitor having a membership before it is possible to listen to any of the members’ radio streams. I refuse to join something blindly. If I knew there was actually something worth listening to, then it would be different. But I will not be held hostage…I move on. You can choose for yourself, however: “mor lam” music on Last.fm. It might be worthwhile…or prove to be a waste of time.

I am listening to a website called play.fm — specifically, a ‘DJ Set ‘ by member Muzikfranz — that is supposed to be a collection of “Crazy Shit │ Lovesongs │ Luk Thung │ Khmer music │ Mor lam .” It’s sort of okay, but he further describes it as “Khmer music from the 60ies & 70ies Sinn Sisamouth, Ros Sereysothea, Pan Ron, and other artists found on my trip through cambodia. ” I wouldn’t expect much Mor Lam to be buried away in it, but who knows? It appears that the collection is a total of just 38 seconds shy of two hours in duration. So far, I’ve heard a couple of old early-1960s rock songs that I have recognized, and sung in — I guess — Cambodian. Ahh! No — my Isaan wife assures me that the few songs she overheard are Thai — songs from her mother’s era. Anyway, anyone can listen, it seems; but to know who is singing any specific performance, it is necessary log in as a member via Facebook. At any rate, I have now played the full session without any hiccups, so it gets my recommendation for that.

I don’t know of any actual online radio stations that play Mor Lam, unfortunately. I am sure many include it, but I doubt that you will find one that plays it exclusively.

If you are into surfing for them, maybe try the following suggestions: Atimemedia.com; ThaiWebRadioCity; Kapook Music; Thai Music; PRD Radio Thailand; and Thailand stations.

Here are a few related websites you may find of some interest — this is a June 9 (2012) post edit, by the way:

In recent years there has been a great deal of cross-pollination between Mor Lam and Luk Thung. Both now share many of the same popular singers, and are played on the same radio stations. The fact that Luk Thung is more …

Mor Lam and Marquee Moon. 17 Jun. One of the aspects of Thai culture that I’m hoping to learn more about while I’m in Thailand is mor lam. mor lam is a style of music that often gets described as “Thai country music”, but that’s a really, really bad descriptor, as it brings up ideas of American country music and mor lam is certainly its own thing. … Nothing else that came over the radio or that I threw on in the car seemed to really pique their interest at all. I don’t know anything about the …

They were concerts to air the sounds and lyrics of ‘mor lam‘, a genre that has its roots in this rice-growing rural belt of north-east Thailand. In the afternoon of May 9, as the 48-year-old Wanida was belting out one of her ‘mor lam‘ songs with an almost rap-music like quality, screaming into the microphone, then breaking into a melody, it was picked up live by a community radio here. The radio station broadcast her Bangkok performance to listeners in villages beyond the

On another day I visited Jenphop Jopgrabuanwan, a former Luk Thung singer who now runs a community radio station (also available online)/CD shop, and generously answers questions about the history of the genre for anyone interested. For those who know Luk Thung well, I apologize for any explanatory reductions in talking about Luk Thung and Mor Lam. There’s plenty more to say about the huge differences between these styles, but for the sake of clarity they

I first heard Thai luk thung and mor lam music just a few years ago on releases by the stellar record labels Subliminal Sounds, Sublime Frequencies and ZudRangMa. I soaked it up and inquired deeper. Luk thung (translation: “children of the fields”) is country music that is thick and I hear sounds blasting from tiny radios over the sputter of tuk-tuk engines. It’s country music to a city beat. Memories of far northern rice fields: emerald lushness and morning fog flowing
