Thanks for choosing KTK airlines!
If you're into great music, no matter where or when it's been recorded then you're at the right place! Grab a drink,
take a seat, fasten your seatbelt. The pilot and the crew wish you a nice trip:
Far out, far east or somewhere else...



หงษ์ทอง ดาวอุดร (บัวหลวงรอรัก)

Ladies & gentlemen, after almost a year "flying around" we're finally arriving in Thailand! We'll spend the next month dancing on one of my main addictions: Luk Thung. Those who follow one of my favourite blog already know about all the great Thai music and I hope the others will enjoy this trip!

All has already been said about the life of Hongthong Dao'Udon from her early carreer start as a teenage Luk Thung star to the loss of her voice and finally her sentence to jail after some politic troubles.
