Gik Dozo - Khao Jai (ເຂົ້າໃຈ)

This is a new band called Gik Dozo. The song is called Khao Jai meaning "Understand". I first heard this song in December and I thought, "Wow this guy has a nice R&B voice!". Turns out it's a band! They are fairly new so information about this band isn't much. This song has earned its spot as one of my favorite Lao songs. Also I translated the characters into English for those who are unable to read Lao. Enjoy the video.



Lyrics: (Lao-English)

HOO LAE GOR KAO JAI
GUB HAED PHON TEE JAO TORNG PAI NAI WUN NEE
