Drums of Thailand

Traditionally, the classic music of the Thais was passed from generation to generation of court musicians. Preserving the music in notation has been complicated by the fact that the Thai musical system does not conform to Western music scales. Thus Princess Chumbhot, a member of the Thai royal family, supported efforts to record performances—in this 1974 release, of a percussion ensemble led by Nai Yanyong. The liner notes provide information about the various drums used in the recordings along with photographs of the performers.
