With his relaxing rhythm, his Pakakeryor music has always been and will always be soothing to the soul. He continuously tries to convey the idea that communication is the origin of a deeper understanding - and understanding is the origin of peace.

Suwichan Phatthanaphraiwan is a Pakakeryor singer, musician, and the first Pakakeryor lecturer at Srinakharinwirot University. He writes and sings Thai-Pakakeryor songs as well as plays tenaku (Pakakeryor mandolin) to illustrate the lifestyle and culture of the tribal people as well as the relationship between humans and nature.
