Myanmar Classical Songs
This song comes from a large number of classic lieder known as Mahagita (Sanskrit for great songs). Here they are played by U Myint Maung on the sadung (harp) and by Daw Yi Yi Yi Yi Thant. For more information about Burma's music and its culture, please visit Robert Garfias' website.
The late U Myint Maung, who died on September 5, 2001, was one of the best harpist of all time. One of the most respected vocalists of the classic Mahagita repertory, Daw Yi Yi Yi Yi Thant. It is a frequent feature on Burma TV and was recently presented on a Shanachie shot titled White Elephants and Golden Ducks.
Recently Smithsonian Folkways made a new record with classic tracks by U Myint Maung and Daw Yi Yi Thant. Under the title Mahagita it contains nine tracks with different musical style and music. The film was taken just before the passing of U Myint Maung and is in his name.
Myanmar title is available in a Word file in Suu Kyi type. If you are interested in other Mahagita song styles, please let me know. Includes other classic Myanmar sites:
