    3) which countries and cultures does the music make you think of if you take away the singing?

    South America (Andes) from the wind instrument and the Middle East from the drumming.

    5) Does it make you think of Isaan?

    No, especially when I see the visuals are of beaches and the Grand Palace in Bangkok, none from Isaan.

    Sorry if my answers are negative.

    I am not expert in music but my opinion may be useful.

    The accent in Thai language is important, also in Chinese. Higher tone words have the different meaning from lower, but not in the west language. So your accent made this song hard to understand what you sang ( I think it should be the same feeling if you hear my English accent). I could understand your words about 20%. The music let me feel to the oriental culture for a few. The sound looked like Mulan soundtracks or the oriental Hollywood soundtracks. It was not clear which country this music belongs to, like Chinese married with Indian. I guess you used a bronze flute voice, why don't you try a Thai flute () for better feeling, made of bamboo. The other way you can use Can (᤹), Isaan music instruments, for showing how this music feels.

    About the words, Thai song structure was modified on the base of Thai poem structure into an easier form, as the west did. Your Thai friends at the university could help you about this problem.

    Anyway, perhaps your music is the fusion style. It is melodious and I hope you will be soon a good musician.

    Find this man Tanis Sriklindee ( ա蹴) on google, He is a master Thai musician who is expert in Thai flute and many bronze music instruments both Thai and Europe. His musics smell like the original Thai style. Even if when he covered Thai pop or rock musics, he would changed them into his style and very nice sounds to listen.

    Example songs:
    ҹѹ - Taan Ta Wan (sunflower)

    string band version

    solo Thai flute instruments version

    harmonic version

    Note: His musics are not Isaan style, but you can feel like you are in the rice field of the countryside by the musics.
