Please help- i would like to download traditional Buddhist music from itunes. I need a song to play during a speech about the religion/culture…
A luk thung, and morlam are the more traditional music of thailand, though morlam has close affinities with the Music of Laos.
keep in mind, Thailand was never occupied by any western country as was most other asian countries, Thailand would rather listen to western music than there own traditional music.
Piphat is a traditional thai “rant”
Luk thung, is country music
pleng Thai sakorn, is a bit more pop
I’ve tried to assemble some references to Morlam music, but it’s getting harder and harder to find discussions that include a YouTube video which has not subsequently been deleted at YouTube, thereby leaving a black-screened player that no longer has a video to play.
In fact, the video that was originally embedded at the bottom of this post on August 10, 2012, has suffered that fate: “The YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated due to multiple third-party notifications of copyright infringement.” So, in this post edit dated December 13, 2013, I am replacing that video with another.
Anyway, I hope the following websites will be of some entertainment or informational value for you:
There are two versions of the theme song, Chompoo and Por duet version, and Chompoo solo version. TomYum Lum Sing is based on love and competition in the Morlum music industry. No doubt, they would release songs …

Read more in Music at Boing Boing …. A lot of the morlum CDs seem to be cursed with fairly glassy 80s type production values, would be great if a Thai “Steve Albini” was around making more fly on the wall type recordings.

Bought at a shop in Van Vieng, Laos in 1996. Lao folk music, which can be heard in Northeast Thailand as well, is based around vocal singing and storytelling accompanied by the Kaen (a bamboo free-reed mouth organ, varieties of which are found throughout Southeast and East Asia). The production … wreck the voice. Overall nice, though. (You might like to add ie. “molam”/”morlam”/”morlum” in your future descriptions – it will give you some more visitors, I guess.).
