Taoboangern (Metallic Lily) Chapoowong could very well be the best-known musician in Laos in the 1990s. Chapoowpong, that has performed in eastern European countries, southeast Asia, and Cuba was classically been trained in Hanoi and Moscow. His achievement can attributed not merely to his great tone of voice, but also to his different and versatile repertoire; he sings luk thung, mor lam, Traditional western pop, aswell as the present day Laotian equal, sakorn. Within a nation with small musical infrastruture, Chapoowong is certainly compelled to oversee every part of his profession from documenting and making to advertising and playing his cassettes. Although occasionally a one-man question, Chapoowong in addition has appreciated collaborations with leading Thai vocalist, Sunaree Ratchasima.
