Honoring Pioneers of Mordern Hmong Music

Paperback, 28 pages, 8.5x11, English
by Tcher-True Thao

It's questionable whether the Hmong living in other parts of the world may have recorded songs accompanying other musical instruments, but the Hmong living in Laos definitely did not until the mid-1960s.

This book attempts to capture the evolution of modern musci for the Hmong in Laos, who were dispersed in 1975 to the United States and other parts of the world.

It gives the history of modern music and profiles a dozen popular singers who themselves are the history.
