Phuket-inspired music CD launched

PHUKET TOWN: Phuket-born album producer Jumpol “Goh Khai” (Older Brother Khai) Thongtan this week launched a limited-release album called “Pleng Phuket”, labeled in English as “Pleasant Tunes of Phuket”. The one-hour launch took place at the classic Sino-Portuguese home of Pracha Tantawanich, a well-known senior citizen of Phuket, whose house is a popular tourist sight in Phuket Town. K. Jumpol said that the concept behind the album is to entertain listeners but also to educate them about Phuket life, including the cultures, traditions, beaches and the local cuisine. “The songs include classics and new compositions smoothly arranged to integrate the new and the old, a concept entirely inspired by Phuket,” he added. The album features many popular Thai singers including Aekachai Srivichai, popular for his Southern Thai numbers, the CU Chorus from Chulalongkorn University, actress Kaewalin Cottland and singers Nadda Wiyakarn, Pom Autobahn and Pong Na Palian.
