8. ຮັກສາວຕານປ່ຽວ Huk Sao Ttahn Ppiao by Manit Phiavongsa
I have no idea how I found this song but I liked the old school feel of this video because those 90's haircuts just took me back. I asked Xai from Lao Heritage Foundation and he said: Not sure about the translation of the title. Could be the name of a village, or if translated literally, "Ttahn Ppaio" is a lone palm tree (confirmed later that is indeed the name of a village).
I think too part of why I'm intrigued by this song is because there's a very cha cha, Latin influence that I'm picking up. In the film Don't Think I've Forgotten, about Cambodia's Rock & Roll scene before the war, I learned that Afro-Caribbean music made its way to Khmer radio and I wonder if perhaps it also wandered into Laos as well.
