Thailand’s queen of dance Kratae R-Siam will be making her way to Brisbane next month along with her sister Kratai R-Siam and her brother Krit Boonyaliang to get local audiences up on their feet and get their pelvis’ in motion! Attendees will no doubt experience the honour of being graced by Thai comedian “Tong Chuancheun” who will also be heading to Australia to host the show.
Kratae is a well-known Thai ‘modern country’ singer. She has been with “R-Siam” music for quiet some time now. The performer is also skilled at dancing thus why she has been dubbed the ‘queen of dance’ in Thailand. Previous to her pop career the musician was trained in the art of Thai boxing and her skills were so advanced that it propted her to enter a boxing competition in Japan and go up against one Japan’s most skilled female competitors.
Fast forward a few years and she then entered the music industry all still at a very young age, her first project was “Luktung four teen” which she did with her friends under R-Siam music. She gained fame from this group project and it was the song in this album known as “Mai Dai Tung Jai Dum (translating to ‘I didn’t mean to be narrow-minded’) that made her more popular and gained more fans.
Two years into her pop career, she then released her own album and she won several awards revolving around best new artist or similar, from the powers that be in the Thai music industry. Following this she released more of her own albums and her skills in dancing and singing continued to improve. She not only continued to gain new Thai followers, but also the Thai minister of Sport who ended up choosing her to represent Thailand as the ambassador of female Thai boxing. This program was created to let people from different countries who follow boxing gain interests in Thai music, the aim of it is to bring music and sports together. Perhaps only in Thailand would such efforts be made to join the two dots!
Her sister Kratai and her brother Krit are well-known and talented singers in their own regard.Both have had works in the music industry and they are under R-Siam music as well. Krit followed in his sister’s steps and released his first single ‘Mahoree Key Sa Aeun’ a country song mixed with Thai traditional music background that also slips in some EDM & hip hop vibes. Now hows that for musical diversity!
