Paowalee Pornpimon Essentials

Singer-songwriter Paowalee Pornpimon has risen from humble beginnings—her parents were both clothes sellers in a local market— to the pinnacle of the rural-centric genre phleng luk thung. Her ascent mirrors her idol, the late trailblazing superstar Pumpuang Duangjan—they both hail from Suphan Buri—whose life she essayed in much-lauded 2011 biographical film The Moon. With her quivering vibrato and electronic-tinged brand of country music, Pornpimon has established herself as a formidable inheritor of that legacy.
