Classical guitar tour

Classical guitar fans will not want to miss the upcoming concert by Hucky Eichelmann, a German guitarist who has lived in Thailand since 1979 where his recordings of the music of King Bhumibol have made the classical guitar a fashionable instrument.

Though he holds a master's degree in classical music, Eichelmann has developed his own diverse musical repertoire bridging the cultures of East and West.

In this concert, titled "Magical melodies: Thailand Tour", Eichelmann will plays songs from his latest album, Magical Melodies of Thailand. The album features 14 Thai songs, all familiar to vernacular ears, such as Sunsern Phra Baramee (Thai Royal Anthem), Khang Khauw Kin Kluay (Bats Feeding on Bananas), Nam Ta Saeng Tai, Lao Duang Duen and Khmer Sai Yoke, to name but a few.

Like previous tours, Eichelmann will reach certain provinces, including Nakhon Ratchasima, Maha Sarakham, Khon Kaen and will end in the capital.
