Nattapon Siangsukon

In recent years, molam, a subgenre of local country music, has been rejuvenated not only in Bangkok’s music scene but with a new international audience. And the man often credited for kick-starting this global renaissance is Nattapon (DJ Maft Sai), owner of Zudrangma Records and Studio Lam performance space and bar. With his Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band he hopes to not only provide exposure for this underappreciated art but also shine a light on the people and communities who have long been the backbone of the genre. Most notably, his molam outfit opened for big names like Damon Albarn and Solange Knowles. They also represented Thailand at Glastonbury in 2016.

Definition of success: Being able to enjoy each day as it comes.
