Koh Chang Welcomes Thai Rock Star

Posted by Vadmin on February 8, 2013

Fans of Thai music on Koh Chang are very excited about the arrival of Loso, a famous and extremely popular rock band fronted by Thai rock idol Seksan Sukpimai (Sek). He is sure to win the hearts of many more fans as he performs in an exclusive concert on 8th March.

 

Taking inspiration from Guns N’ Roses and Thai band Carabao, Sek saved up enough to buy a cheap guitar. He learned some basic chords and it wasn’t long before he was performing to the crowds. Armed with his guitar and a small repertoire of songs, he managed to talk his way onto the stage at one of Bangkok’s best-known live-music venues, Austin Pub. Within a year, the 17-year-old was fronting the house band, playing covers of Thai and international rock, indie and pop.

He began biographies of his idol Jimi Hendrix, and dedicated to pursue his dream of becoming a worldwide phenomenon. In 2004, he decided to pack up his belongings and move to London, as Hendrix had. He enrolled in an ESOL school and after six months of intensive learning, he could speak fluent English, complete with a British accent. It was then that he began writing songs in English.

It wasn’t long before he found himself on the international stage, playing to crowds of over 100,000 people all over the world. He is a true global talent and Loso were one of the first Thai bands to achieve success on the international circuit. Since embarking on tours across the world, he has played at festivals including South by Southwest and Glastonbury.

His visit to Koh Chang is certainly causing a stir and despite reaching international stardom, he is very humble and has never forgotten his roots. He may love playing to tens of thousands of people, but he is equally as happy in a small venue playing to a small, intimate crowd.
