KHAU VAI (12)

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Thank you to all of you who voted and commented on the series of the various hill tribe young women on the stage at the Love market in Khau Vai.

The last act were some musicians playing a strange instrument (to my eyes and ears)Khen Meo. They not only were very good musicians but they were also skilled dancers. The two men turned around each other and from time to time they jumped while still playing their instrument.

The Khen Meo are made out of bamboo, wood, or buffalos' skin. Usually they are played in various ceremonies for example asking the Spirits to help the rice grow or before the crop.

Hoping you like the photo,
Jean-NoŽl
