Thailand is a country located in the Indochinese Peninsula. It is famous for lagoons, aquamarine coastal waters and paradisal landscapes. The magnets that attract tourists to the country are Thai cuisine, Buddhism, traditional Thai massage, diving, tropical islands, as well as rich flora and fauna. At the heart of Thailand lies its capital, Bangkok – a vibrant, thriving and modern metropolis of more than 8 million inhabitants. It is here that in 2013 Plerngchompoo – Satit Chulalongkorn Folk Dance Group was founded. PLERNGCHOMPOO is affiliated with the so-called Demonstration Secondary School, which operates under the auspices of the Chulalongkorn University. The rationale behind the foundation of the ensemble was to promote the Thai culture abroad.


The Festival audience will have a chance to witness a performance composed of images and scenes from various regions of Thailand. The dances will include a sword fight (with elements of traditional Siamese martial arts), tarimaracas (a contemporary dance created in the southern province of Phatthalung), a cymbals dance (a classical Thai dance involving use of finger cymbals called zills or saggats), teut-teung (a dance with the accompaniment of the teut-teung drum, a popular instrument used throughout the country, with Myanmar origins), a dance of the four regions (with elements representative of the four main regions of Thailand), tida fah yard dance (a modern creation with traditional elements originating from the north-eastern literature, and redolent of the Cambodian culture).


Jutimaporn Paojinda is the main ensemble instructor and musical band leader. The choreographer’s role is also performed by Kodchakon Testhomya. The musical band will be playing a ranat ek (a percussion instrument typically made of rosewood and belonging to the xylophone family), ranat thum (typically made of bamboo and producing lower-pitched sounds), khim (a stringed instrument similar to a dulcimer), taphon (a barrel-shaped, two-headed drum), klong khaek (a double-headed drum), saw duang (a bowed two-stringed instrument) and a variety of smaller percussion instruments.
