Music and curated by Suppabhorn Suwanpakdee

Performed by Mae Hong Son Music Gurus and Ensemble Music Makers

Uplifting tunes,

Mae Hong Son’s folk music is rich with stories that reflect the way of life through agriculture, rituals, traditions, and music. Beauty can be transmitted through sounds and infused with traditional culture, preserving the important identity of the people.

Vivid reminiscence,

Some stories may be recorded in the form of music and passed down from generation to generation, allowing future generations to comprehend and remember the roots of the ancient culture.

Far away land in the mist

Mae Hong Son is the city of three mists and diverse culture. Music ... continues to perform these functions.
