Bookmark and Share

Ram klong-yao is another performing art from Central Thailand as Like. Originated from the area where rice growing is prevalent and inherited the warmth and happiness of the farmers, it is performed solely for fun and relaxation on all festive occasions such as weddings, monk ordination ceremonies, etc.

To get to know this dance, it is indispensable to take a quick look at klong-yao (long drum). The drum is made from similar materials to other Asian drums: wooden body, buffalo head and usually decorated with a colorful. Its length might be extended up to 10 m, which are sometimes used in parades.

The dancers sling klong-yao on their backs and play with bare hands or with cymbals during the dancing to lighten the atmosphere with pulse and excitement. The keys to notch up a successful Ram klong-yao is the creativity and improvisation of the dancers, expressed in unplanned choreography with incorporated contortions.

The dance not only is a unique part of Thai culture but also provide enjoyable and essential food for thoughts for people in the peaceful and well-off regions of Thailand.
