Music in Thailand


I had high hopes for catching some great local music while in Thailand over the holidays. I’d heard a lot about what they call “Thai country music,” which is really a rough and rowdy brand of homemade rock ‘n’ roll called Molam that’s from the Isan region (northeast of the country). Never found any, as luck would have it. However, I did catch a few minutes of of this awesome blind guy (see photo), who was walking down Silom Rd in Bangkok, strumming an electrified four-string guitar (with only one string). 20 baht got me two photos and a 30 second listening session.
