MOLAM is a multi-faceted folk country music native to Laos and the collection of rural Northeastern Thai provinces called Isan. "Molam” is an umbrella term used for numerous Lam styles. It literally translates into "expert singer" or "expert song". Featured here in volume 2 of this series are Lam Phun, Lam Thuy, Lam Plern, Lam Dern and Lam Sing styles of Molam recordings from the 1970s and 1980s. All of these forms are built from a tradition that is centuries-old. A few examples of Molam/Luk Thung (Thailand’s national country music) hybrids are also featured here.
