Thai ukulele players

19 2010

Thailand‘s ukulele community seems to be increasing judging from their website. Today I’d like to share my latest ukulele findings from Thailand with several Thai players exploring different styles of music.

Firstly, let’s find out what Thai sounds like with a cover of a song called ตุ๊กตาหน้ารถ (Took-ka-ta-na-rod) by siampansey.

Next comes a song which I quite like _although I haven’t got a clue what it is about_ , performed by akehawa.

Update: Paintedbird kindly provided me with the Thai name of the song เพลงส่วนตัว (peng-suan-tua) meaning ‘private song’ in English.

Thai ukulele players seem to be quite fond of fingerstyle uke as we’ll see in the coming videos.

Beforespace is playing Close to You, displaying great ukulele skills.

Tan kham nun, an instrumental ukulele cover by O2ukulele.

Alo55Man covers Sukiyaki.

Finally, some funky ukulele on a blue Makala by fotobeer2516.

    the song performed by akehawa (in thailand, we call him “ake-cha-em”) is เพลงส่วนตัว (peng-suan-tua) or private song (translated to be Eng).

    I like his song very much.

    Paintedbird: Welcome here and thanks very much for providing some explanation about ake-cha-em’s song.
