Khru Plueang Chairatsami, the owner of this traditional Thai residence, was declared a National Artist in 1986 in the field of folk music. He built a farmer’s hut to be used as a traditional music school. The hut also displays traditional musical instruments such as Phin (lute), Khaen (reed organ), So (bowed stringed instrument) and Pong Lang (northeastern-style xylophone). It also provides accommodations for students from other areas who come to study traditional music.
Khru Plueang is a widely respected Kalasin figure, legendary for popularizing a northeastern style of music called Pong Lang. He also created new styles of folk music such as Mak Kalong, which involves a musical instrument made from a string of cow bells.
The residence is located at 229/4, Kaset Sombun Road, Tambon Kalasin, Amphoe Mueang. For more information, call 0 4382 0366.
