Kicky Yaniga Lertpimonchai aka FOOFOO is 1 of 3 daughters of her biiiiig family. She became the first child of her parents in 19th April 1991. A few year after that, she realised that her passion is dedicated to Music. Around 17 years later, Percussions chose her to be their slave.
Apart from being a gentle lady in girl school for 14 years, she had been an exchange student in Santa Catarina, Brazil for 1 year. So she could speak Portuguese and do some samba dance. After graduated from Journalism and Mass Communication from Thammasat University, she started her career as a creative copywriter in international Advertising Agency but still continuously separate her soul for Music’s sake. So let’s say she’s a half musician half creative.
She played percussion in many bands and for many artists and still want to jam with many more… 🙂 Also still continuing do her job in Advertising & PR area for living. (That’s the hardest part.)
People may know her as Percussionist of Koko’ and YAAN. She just started to do her own project in the name ‘FOOFOO’ since had been jamming with others for so long. Apart from playing she also organizing events and founded her own festival to support Thai local artists called ‘Long Khan Music Fest’
