SOUNDS OF FUTURE SIAM
BOYS, BE BOYS
Boys, Be Boys is inspired from a music genre that originated in North-Eastern of Thailand (E-SAN) communities in the mid-1960s when musicians created a rhythmic, danceable new form of music through a mixture of soul, jazz, and rhythm and blues (R&B). It de-emphasizes melody and chord progressions and focuses on a strong rhythmic groove of a bassline played by an electric bassist and a drum part played by a percussionist, often at slower tempos than other popular music.
Like much of E-SAN-inspired music, Boys, Be Boys consists of a complex groove with rhythm instruments playing interlocking grooves that create a "hypnotic" and "danceable" feel.
Sud Sanan merged between Clarinet and Thai Khaen style ― a mouth organ of Lao origin whose pipes, which are usually made of bamboo, are connected with a small, hollowed-out hardwood reservoir into which air is blown. Today associated with the Lao people of Laos and Isan of Thailand. An unique music instrument of Thailand and Laos with a unique sound.
MUSIC IS THE MESSAGE
When turmoil is all around,
There is power in the calming sound.
Music unites generations,
It is the way to heal our nation.
Shouts that try to tear us apart,
Are wiped away by songs from the heart.
Rhythms, melodies, sung together in harmony,
Remind us we are all part of one Thai family.
Wherever you come from, be it near or far,
Music demonstrates who you are.
The message remembered long after it is sung,
Is firmly planted in the minds of everyone.
Different dialogues, different backgrounds,
Yet often the same foundation of thoughts.
Different generations, Different ages,
All struggle with the conflict that is brought.
It is time to unite
And no longer fight
It is time to inspire
And no longer conspire
We have all been brought together, by these current events,
Music is the one thing that makes perfect sense.
Joy is in the music, peace in there as well,
Music is the story that all of us can tell.
