Substantial ethnomusical research has gone into this presentation of the songs of Kam Raw (b. 1938) a Kammu from northern Laos who followed his family tradition as a singer at ceremonial occasions or local celebrations. The words and tones are translated into phonics and into English. With references and discography.
