This project has been carried out in Northern Thailand, Laos, and in South-west area of China. From mountainous part of China, many people of minorities have migrated to neiboring countries, such as Laos, Thailand and Vietnam, during this century. They have carried with them their singing and music, which may be one of the most effective media to identify the owner or carrier, that is the minolities. Basically, the object of the project has been focused on three facets of music of these districts concerned : the original music and behavior of each people, the native music of the districts or classical music, and the real state or tendencies of music behavior as a whole after the hill tribes or minolities have setteled down into their new land.
The main stand of the field-work in 1993 and 1994, being in Luan Prabang, the ancient capital of Laos, four aspects around the music have been noticed. 1 : the traditional form of ensemble, called maholi, may have something to do with Mon Kumer culture and its court music. 2 : music structure or form of singing and songs in Laos as a whole was roughly traced. Including the study of molam, a typical singing style of Northern Thailand, this 2 is the beginning for the understanding of Lao music. 3 : Folk theater and theatrical arts, for example, modern musical (lam-luang) and the doll play (ipok) , were partly investigated. 4 : Minorities, such as the Khamus, the Hmongs, and the Thai Lues, have kept their music tradition in their new villages.
The comparative studies from the point of view above mentioned are being made, expecting to research much more intensively and also in the neighborhood as northern Vietnam.
