Pongsri Woranuch (Thai: ผ่องศรี วรนุช; RTGS: Phongsi Woranut) is a Thai musician. She first became a star in the 1950s, practicing music in the style of luk thung.[1] Woranut melded the style of traditional Thai folk music to music from outside the region, including various genres of East Asian music, Latin American music, and American country music and film music. Alongside Suraphon Sombatjalern, she is considered one of the most important of this genre's practitioners.[2]
