FAMOUS pop rock idol Aed Carabao or Yuenyong Opakul of the Carabao rock band has penned a new song as a tribute to the late His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Thai PBS said this morning.
A message was posted on Facebook which quickly went viral in the social media, saying that Aed had written a new song, entitled Por Bhumibol (Father Bhumibol), and recorded the song at a studio.
Five years ago, Aed released a song, entitled Phu Pid Thong Lang Phra, to commemorate 65th anniversary of His Majesty the King’s accession to the throne and his 84th birthday.
It was reported that the His Majesty the King then expressed his appreciation of Aed’s talent for including his name in the song.
The Carabao rock band, very popular both in Thailand and other Asian countries, was formed in 1981 by Aed and Kirati Promsaka Na Sakon Nakhon (Keo or Khiao) who met while studying at Mapúa Institute of Technology in the Philippines. The word carabao means ‘buffalo,’ a symbol of fighting, hard work, and patience, Wikipedia said.
