Here at Mut Mee we put on special events around the year to mark dates such His Majesty The King's Birthday and Christmas and New Year, and to provide a focus for those interested in the local culture.
Pictured to the right and below is the Isan Pot Dance, performed to perfection by a local schools group here in our garden.
Throughout the year there are all kinds of events
both in the town and in the garden of Mut Mee itself.
The events in Nong Khai and the surrounding area are listed and explained in the "Our Calendar" section.
|The Isan Pot Dance is very much a local tradition only seen in this part of Thailand. A young girl "plays" the pots while the band behind her synchronize their sound with her movements, so it appears as if she is making the music. Moreover, as she runs her hands from left to right across the pots, so the musicians behind her run up and down the musical scale. It requires a high degree of skill to make this magic of "a music to the dance" rather than "a dance to the music".
