This cd is about a healing ceremony held by a 80 years old Black Hmong shaman: jumping while performing in a private hmong house in Lai Chau province, near Sapa.
The hmongs are a predominant ethnic group in Southern China, Northern Laos and Vietnam. they all come from Guizhou province (China) where they are called Miao. The ones who left China in the 19th century have re-defined various cultural identities since then, but musically speaking, the mouth organ remains their main distinctive instrument.
This recording is about a shamanic trance where the shaman is not only intending to 'clean' the body and soul of people but also their house and possibly forecast their future.
