I Will Send My Song: Kammu Vocal Genres in the Singing of Kam Raw
Responsible organisation
2010 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

An ethnomusical presentation of one person’s vocal performance of rather highly varied sets of words, manners of performance, and the use of these competences in communication with other singers. Although this orally transmitted form of singing is unique to the Kammu of northern Laos, it is related to a much larger complex in Southeast Asia and thus will be of interest to a wide group of musicologists.
