Thingyan (Myanmar/Burma). 'Myanmar in April is so hot that you’ll enjoy getting soaked at Thingyan (Water Festival), which marks the start of the country’s new-year celebration. The festival involves lots of drinking, dancing, singing and theatre. Cultural taboos are temporarily lifted, so women can ‘kidnap’ young men, blacken the men’s faces with soot or oil, and dunk their heads in buckets of water until they perform a hilarious monkey dance.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/myanmar-burma
ILLIMBA The ilimba is a lamellophone from Tanzania. It is a traditional instrument of the Gogo ethnic group and its most famous player in the 20th century was Hukwe Zawose, who developed a version of the instrument with between 66 and 72 metal keys. The instrument is similar to the Zimbabwean mbira but larger, and is tuned to intervals derived from the overtone series.
