Old Thai tunes hip once more

Long shunned by Bangkok's trendy crowd, two music genres linked to rural life become nightclub hits.

    Locals and tourists would not normally hear traditional music in Thailand's hip nightclubs.

    But one deejay in the capital Bangkok came up with the idea of playing music long associated with cab drivers and rural folks, showing clubbers what they have been missing.

    The decision paid off and the music is now popular again, bringing in record crowds to the night scene.
