MILLI recently made headlines as the first Thai solo performer at Coachella 2022 and went viral for her performance of “Mango Sticky Rice” – which she performed with the dessert in-hand, causing a nationwide uptick in demand for the dish in Thailand. The performance was so next level, it set off a global chain reaction for the popular Thai dessert, which literally went viral, raising sales of the dish across multiple countries following her performance.
As reported by CNN, NBC News, NME, The Guardian, The Independent, The Nation Thailand, South China Morning Post, and many more, MILLI’s Coachella moment raised the sweet Thai dessert’s stature to a fever pitch. A mere two days later, the Thai Prime Minister lobbied UNESCO to make mango sticky rice a national dish for Thailand. And it was MILLI’s track that started it all.
