A Lagudua song is one of the RongNgang music in a distinct Southern Thai-Muslim tradition that plays a significant role in the musical-cultural relationship between the people in southern Thailand. The purpose of this creative research is to study the music structure and music forms of Lagudua songs and rearrange them in a duet style for violin. The researcher studied the information about folk music (RongNgang) and selected five popular RongNgang songs that are most often performed in the five southern border provinces. One of the songs selected that is present in this article is Lagudua. The researcher took Lagudua songs for structural and musical form analysis, then re-arranged them in a duet style for violins, and recorded the works in audio media.
The result found that Lagudua song structure consists of melodies that are composed in G harmonic minor scales within a time signature of 2/4 (simple duple) with a range from G4-B5. The musical form consists of antecedent and subsequent phrases. Harmonic intervals are used as the rhythm style of the song. The rhythmic counterpoint techniques were used to emphasize a consonant interval, which is a shuffled orchestration of the main melody between violin1 and violin2. Furthermore, a variety of violin techniques are used for violin skill development. The results of the research are applicable to teaching and learning violin lessons, enabling students to develop their violin skills, small ensemble skills, and appreciate the importance of folk music in Southern Thai culture.
