Music Celebrates Iran-Thailand Friendship

The Thai band Kor Pai and the Iranian ensemble Zasta had a joint performance at Tehran’s Vahdat Hall recently to celebrate the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Iran and Thailand.

Thai diplomats, including Ambassador Rasmee Chittham, and Iranian cultural officials attended the concert.
Before the ‘Iran and Thailand Friendship Concert’ began, Chittham welcomed the audience and expressed satisfaction over the expansion of relations in different fields between the two sides. He read a message sent by Thailand’s Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, General Tanasak Patimapragorn.
“We consider this year important in bilateral relations as it celebrates the 60th anniversary of friendship,” he said, adding that Thailand and Iran “have a long shared history in the development and modernization of Thailand,” and the concert highlights the strong relations.
He compared Thai musical instruments ‘kim’ and ‘ramana’ with Iranian instruments ‘santur’ and ‘daf’ and said Persian music has influenced Thai music.
“The musical interactions between the two countries, also shows that Thailand is a free country embracing different cultures.”
The Thai group presents a blend of musical style, combining contemporary and traditional music. “The members are skilled players who compose absorbing rhythmic melodies,” he added.
 Kor Pai and Zasta performed a repertoire of Iranian and Thai music. The national anthems of the two countries were also played at the concert.
