Traditional sounds float over the rice fields

In collaboration with Sangob Foundation, Visiting Schools Program recreated a typical cultural scene on the Traidhos Farm when a group of students from a girls school in Australia studied traditional Thai musical instruments. 

As the cool breeze wafted through Baan Din, the dedicated  young musicians got to grips with Thai stringed instruments to the beat of a local drum. Everyone was amazed at how quickly the girls were able to transfer their knowledge of western instruments to Thai instruments. By the end of their session, well-known Thai melodies were floating across the pond and rice fields.

After the music session, the girls tried an introduction to traditional sword dancing. Everyone had a lot of fun.
