Description:A sung version of part of the traditional story of Maaw Nawng Yaang and Naang Kham Kaw; the full epic tale is many hours long. It may be a local version of the story of Prince Lo (which has a famous Thai version, ลิลิตพระลอ), except the names in this version are maaw6 nOng1 jaang4 (‘Mr. Crane Lake’) and naang4 kham4 kO6 (‘Lady ??? Gold’). There is also a version where there names are sHaam1 lO4 (sHaam1 means ‘third son’ and lO4 would be cognate with the ลอ in Thai พระลอ, meaning unclear) and o2 pim6 (o2 means ‘fifth daughter’ and pim6 meaning unclear). This snippet proved difficult to parse and translate, due to its poetic style, but the basic gist is that there are two villages, Patong Village and Tsoi Tsa-kho Village, and the young man (Nong Yang) from Patong is singing to the ladies of Tsoi Tsa-kho, asking if they have heard of him, etc. Sometimes he is singing to a group of ladies, sometimes to Kham Ko alone. It is a series of calls and answers between the man and the women.. Language as given: Tai Khamti, Khamti, Khamti Shan
