VOA-Lao Service Music program this week is proudly to introduce to you, Alex Tapanya or Alex San Dinero, the very first Laotian American to sing Lao-Spanish in Laogaeton-an upbeat Latin-hip-hop style. Alex told VOA that he wants to be the first Lao singer-song writer to come out with this Latin beat. His debut album should due out by late December this year. The first song, Dejalo Solo song was written to devote to all sisters who have abusive partners: "Just remember you have some one who loves and cares for you. Start all over and walk again." The second song is done in both Lao and Spanish and the last song De Puerto Rico a Lao. Enjoy!
Alex will also bring out some Lao flavor to his songs by combining Kane and other traditional Lao instrument in the future albume.
