EARLY PHOTOGRAPHY IN ESAN AND LAOS
Today, some photos of the royal dance troupe of Luang Prabang performing traditional dances and masked khon: Phra Lak Phra Ram (the Laotian version of the Ramayana).
On this last picture, the Boosra Mahin Siamse troupe in Berlin (1900). Surprisingly, the picture features 2 mo khaen who also perfomed in Berlin. Those musicians are the first Thai musician who ever been recorded. Sadly, none of the recordings available online feature khaen.
