Title

Siam: Nanhalung Show

Description

Kenneth talks about the Nanhalung show that would run through the night. People would hear the drum and walked in the dark, with torches, to the place where the sound came from and gather for the show. Kenneth heard the drum beat while studying Greek or Hebrew late at night and he would often join the show. This was a great opportunity to interact with Thai people.
