Pleng Ten Gam Ram Kiew

Pleng Ten Gam Ram Kiew is an old local performance of residents in the Central region in the area of Nakhonsawan Province where their main job is growing rice and their character is to love fun and verse . The content of the song will reflect their ways of life, through dancing postures. Emphasizing fun, dancers will hold a sickle in one hand and a bunch of rice in the other.
How to play :

There are 5 pairs of dancers, divided in 2 sides. The male side is called “Por Pleng”, the female side is called “Mae Pleng”. Start with Por Pleng who will sing the song inviting Mae Pleng to dance and each one will switch their role but join together in singing. The others who are not Por Pleng or Mae Pleng will clap their hands and say “He Hey” in rhythm.
How to dress :

All male dancers will wear Gang Geng Kha Geuw (like Chinese trousers) and Seu Giu Heng Si Dum (black Chinese shirts) with a bathing cloth tied around the waist and a bamboo hat but no shoes. All female dancers will hold the loincloth up tightly around the waist and wear long-sleeve blouses in black, with a flower above the right ear and no shoes. All dancers will hold a sickle in the right hand and a bunch of rice in the left hand.
