  Eua Suntonsanaan

 

Thailand

Eua Suntonsanaan, the Music Master of the Rattanakosin Period, whom in 2010, the centenary year of his birth, was honoured by UNESCO as an Important Person of the World.

 

One of the major musical composers and musicians of his time, his prolific writing of lyrics and music resulted in around 2,000 Thai classic songs, many of them considered to be both literary and musical masterpieces. In the background  and behind him are pennants and an ensign with the name and logo of his big band Suntarapon.
