When the gongs are played in the Cholim village, there are usually three, each with a different rhythm: (q represents a stroke and Q a rest). The aphang and giphoen gongs are played by damping on the first rest. The abang gong is not damped. ăphang¹ | q Q Q q | q Q Q q | q Q Q q | q Q Q q | gi¹phoen¹ | Q q q Q | Q q q Q | Q q q Q | Q q q Q | ăbang² | q Q q Q | q Q q Q | q Q q Q | q Q q Q | We were told that the ăphang would be the largest, the giphoen of middle size, and the ăbang the smallest. Nevertheless, I suspect these names are for the rhythm. The vocalisation of the gong tune is bong toem bong te bong toem bong te
