Akha women sing [or chant] field songs as they travel to and from their fields. There are not traditional words to the songs, they are made up and vary each time. Usually the songs reflect on the difficulty of life, or memories of the past. The constant in the songs is the sound and tone. In this video, we hear an Akha woman from Chiang Rai, Thailand who is chanting a passage from a Bible verse at Akha Outreach Media.
