MU111 - Asia Name : Hanifa Ayunisa Listening and Short Answer STUDY GUIDE Vietnam –Bronze Gong Ensemble Thailand – Piphat Laos – Tam Klawn Korea- Pansori China – Qin China – Sizhu Japan - Kabuki Mongolia – Overtone Throat Singing 1. Vietnam –Bronze Gong Ensemble The music sounds fairly simple, and the metal gongs with somewhat “fuzzy” pitches are fascinated. Led by young female dancers, the male musicians walk counterclockwise in a circle, each striking a single bronze gong. Ensembles of gongs are relatively common among upland Vietnam’s ethnic groups, and they are associated with both festival and religious rituals, including funerals. 2. Thailand – Piphat Piphat ensembles require at least three melodic instruments and two rhythmic instruments, but usually add to these. Virtually all Thai music is in duple meter, which means it operated with grouping of two, four, or eight beats.
