Traditional Flute Festival 2018 - Sounds of Khlui: Masterclass with Thanis Sriklindee
Nicknamed "Khlui Martial Artist" for his mastery in the instrument, Thanis Sriklindee is a professional khlui player, multi-instrumentalist, record producer and composer from Thailand. After receiving his bachelor's degree in Musicology from Srinakharinwirot University, Thanis Sriklindee went on to be a music instructor in various schools and colleges, including the Chandrakasem Teachers College and Chulalongkorn University for about ten years. He first gained recognition playing the khlui as a backup musician for the "Made In Thailand" album of the band Carabao. Since then, he had been the backup musician and record producer for several Luk Thung vocalists and his khlui playing had been heard and loved throughout Thailand. In 2016, Thanis Sriklindee was the first Thai flute player to be conferred the prestigious status of Thai National Artist of Performing Art by the Ministry of Culture in 2016. In this masterclass, we will explore the unifying force of Thanis Sriklindee's flute music and its ability to resonate with the commonfolk of Thailand, and the significance of the khlui flute in Thai culture. Participants will also be able to have a hands-on experience with the khlui flute during the class.

Traditional Flute Festival 2018 - Closing Concert: Wings of Resonance
“Wings of Resonance”, the closing concert of the Traditional Flute Festival 2018 features a stellar ensemble of leading traditional musicians from the Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore, Korea and Japan. Boasting a repertoire of traditional flute classics from the diverse cultures of Asia, we follow the metaphorical trail of a little bird, symbolised by the music of a flute, as he flies all over the land in search of his own identity. Along the way, he crosses paths with his fellow feathered counterparts: an eagle, a pong’kle, a cuckoo, a peacock and a crane. In each of them the little bird sees an embodiment of qualities he aspires towards, including courage, freedom, divinity, beauty and longevity. As his journey draws to a close, the little bird realises that he has learnt something from every one of them that brings him closer to self-revelation. Will the little bird discover who he really is and figure out where he should go from there?
