A pioneer in introducing Western music into Thai popular culture, he founded the Suntaraporn band in the 1940s. Thailand's best-known big band, it continues to play concerts and special functions. Eua studied Western classical music at the Phran Luang School, starting on violin. By age nine, he was playing an orchestra. At age 18, he enrolled in the Vithaya Sakol Dontri Sathan music school, studying harmony and arrangement. Around this time he played in a big band for the government's Performance Department. He was paid 20 baht a month. He continued to play classical music as well, but noticed that the jazz bands were attracting larger crowds, which made him realize that classical music was no longer in demand.show more
