About Me

Pop, Rock, Glam-rock singer Phyu Phyu Kyaw Thein was born Phyu Phyu Thein in 1981 in Rangoon, Burma. She started singing in her teens in a church choir. While studying to become a doctor, she self-released her first album with the help of friends who were inspired by the then 19-year old saying "I want to become a world famous singer" in a country which no longer knew the world and which the world had largely forgotten.


Dividing her time between studying during the day and recording her 2002 debut album ‘Nothing To Do With Him Anymore’ by night, Phyu Phyu met legendary Burmese rock band Iron Cross in the studio. They invited her as opening act for their 2003 concerts, providing the chance for Phyu Phyu to combine her powerful voice with her unprecedented style of stage performance. Her live shows earned her rave reviews, a fan base, and hailed Phyu Phyu as the new face of rock in Myanmar.

Discography

Subsequent release of her first album "NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU AGAIN" in November of the same year was more of a breakthrough than a success. The new generation embraced her with their hearts wide open while it provoked a lot of controversies among the old-liners. The 30 second long TV commercial for her new album was banned from airing from a local TV channel (one of two in the country both state-owned) after appearing for two days supposedly because of her 'unusual style of singing'. These were days when artists worked under heavy censorship and all new creations were viewed suspiciously from authority.
