Music  

thai musicThe Thai people have always had a passion for music and song. Traditional Thai music is quite unique and cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Its exotic and wondrous sounds captivate and sometimes confound the listener. Not unlike western sounds, Thai music has several styles representative of different regions of the country.

Thailand's musical styles include Thai classical music, folk songs and local or regional music. Specific songs and instruments are used for social gatherings and events such as festivals, marriages, funerals, folk theaters, post-harvest songs, traditional sports, etc. The music is closely related to the life and work of the people.

Folk music ranges from the essential to the boisterously syncopated and varies from region to region. In contrast to Thai classical music, folk songs usually feature merry and witty repartees.
