If you are ever able to visit an Asian Festival you will experience tons of great food, deserts and savory dishes. You will greet friendly people celebrating their culture and prosperity. You will also get to hear more traditional music like the clip you heard at the top of this Hub! I hope you get to check one out someday!

Thanks Sueswan! I agree that music is the universal language. It says a lot without actually using words. I know that this video is a really short one and a bit shaky but I am new at this and am beta testing the video feature that will be released soon on HubPages. This was taken on my Motorola Droid phone. I really need a better video camera and that is the next thing I plan to purchase! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! I appreciate your votes too!

Thanks for posting this J.S.Matthew and for providing a highlight of our region, Southeast Asia. Music and cultural events such as the one you featured are effective means of building bridges and understanding between people.

Hello moiragallaga! The music from your region is very beautiful. It hasn't changed in thousands of years and I love to listen to it. Next year when I go back to the festival I want to take a longer video and use my tripod so it's not so shaky! I agree that music builds bridges. You don't even have to speak the same language to enjoy a musical piece. Thanks for the insightful comment. I appreciate you stopping by!
