Introduction :: Pisces Music and Boy Thai Band

 

PISCES MUSIC

Pisces Music was formed in 1987 by Mrs.Amporn Chakkaphak, a former journalist who had extensive background in organizing international music shows & cultural events with Nite Spot Production--a pioneer in bringing international artists to Thailand. She is also known as “Silom”, a pen name that she used for her music columns in various Thai and english publications in the past 30 years.

Pisces Music was conceived with an aim of becoming an independent private company that strive to promote traditional Thai music on the local and international levels, and at the same time forging the missing link between different generations of musicians.

“Kangsadan”, Pisces Music’s first group in 1989, was led by the late Jamnian Srithaiphan a leading oboist who was later named “National Artist” by the Thai Government. The core musicians, meanwhile, consisted of a young generation of musicians from the “Supoj Tosa-nga” family who were regarded as the finest “Ranat”(Thai Xylophone) players in the country. The group had performed in several countries including“Festival of Asian Arts Hong Kong”, “Festival of Asian Performing Arts Singapore”, “Earth Celebration” ,“Miura Percussion Meeting” in Japan, and “Festival of Asia 2001” in New Zealand.

In 1995, Pisces Music set up a new band “Boy Thai” , with an aim of creating a new musical style that will appeal to an international audience, while maintaining a distinctive Thai identity. The group is credited for the resurgence of traditional Thai music among the new generation. (Read more in Band Profile)

Today, Pisces Music is still strongly commited to preserve the rich musical history of Thailand, and opening up more new avenues to help the artform survive into the next century.
