Abstract: The purpose of the article is to investigate salient unity strategies by which the provincial anthems of the Suntaraporn band are unified within the specified concept. Results reported two major unity strategies found in provincial anthems: lyrical theme strategy and compositional theme strategy. This lyrical unity strategy restricts the song content by its specific purpose which is distinguished into three types: (1) those that emphasise information of that province or place regarding, for instance, landmarks, activities, typical landscapes or history; (2) those that focus on presenting emotion, which is mostly related to love or narrating about a lover and connect her/him with a particular place, withoutproviding provincial information; and (3) those that aim to establish people's solidarity or patriotism among members by its exciting rhythm and pitch. On the other hand, the compositional unity strategy confines the songs by three criteria: (1) song title which is then separated into those with modifiers and those without modifiers, (2) rhythm by which the songs are presented, and (3) lyrics which, in this study, refer particularly to the order arrangement of the content which partially enhances listeners' comprehension.
