Thai Music at the Millennium: The Post-Life of a Royal Court Music

The electrifying Thai classical music ensemble Kor Pai will play a brief live set after a screening of the film Homrong (Overture, 2004), in which their music is heard prominently. Homrong is a biopic about Luang Pradit Phairau (1881-1954), widely regarded as the most influential musician of the 20th century, whose career bridged the royal courts, to the end of the absolute monarchy, through the rebuilding of Bangkok following WW2. Kor Pai (“Bamboo”) is a top-ranked Thai classical music ensemble formed over 30 years ago, featuring two generations of outstanding musicians with court lineages. They have won awards for their recordings and film scores. Their performances reflect the best of traditional styles as well as a contemporary spirit of experimentation based in traditional knowledge. Kor Pai will be in Southern California on tour, with performances scheduled at UCLA and at several Thai Buddhist temples. Their performance will be introduced by Dr. Supeena Insee Adler (Ph.D., UCR in ethnomusicology) and Kor Pai leader Prof. Anan Nakkong.

Free and open to the the public.
Parking: Complimentary permits available at the Kiosk.


Co-sponsored by the Department of Music, the Program in Southeast Asian Studies, and the Program in Asian Studies.
