Pamai Chirdkiatisak

The beginning of his musical career was from the old cassette-tape days when his father introduced him to a rock album in secondary school. As young as he was, the sound of the electric guitar was nothing like he had ever heard before. The more he listened to it the more he was determined that this was going to be his instrument.

He aspired to become a guitarist, formed a rock band in secondary school, and that later led him onto a major turning point in his life – to join the prestigious pre-college music program at College of Music, Mahidol University. Consequently, Chirdkiatisak graduated with a Bachelor of music in Jazz Performance at College of Music, Mahidol University in 2014, and then became a guest instructor in Jazz department at the same university until 2017.

He also received First Prize in the Thailand Jazz Competition in 2014: Band Competition (Black Tiger). In 2017, he received Third Prize in Made in New York Jazz Competition which brought him to play in the Gala Jazz concert, held by board members of Made in New York Jazz Competition at Tribeca Performing art center in New York City. There, he had the opportunity to play with talented and legendary Jazz artists, including Lenny White, John Benitez, Roberto Quintero, Caloé Profil Perso, Alexis Baro etc.
