|Abstract:||A chant of a drum sequence called Deo Layagu.|
|Description:||Naresh visits again this morning. More v interesting info learnt. I persuade him to chant one of the drum sequences he’s learnt, which I tape: called Deo Layagu it is to be played outside a shrine (as opposed to the longer “Chore” which is played on processions through the town). I try to quiz him on different sounds and their relation to different beats: “khin” and “kha” refer to striking the drum with a stick as held in the left hand; “Ta” = a slap with the right hand with fingers splayed open (on one point of drum face – Naresh can’t remember whether it’s at the centre or the side); while “NURRA” refers to a finger run (a 4-hit tattoo using index finger first through to little finger last).|
