  Royal Barge Procession

 

Thailand

The Royal Barge Procession (fig.) on the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. The oarsmen keep the rhythm by the beating of drums, the lifting and dropping of large upright bamboo rods decorated with seven white tassels, and the sound of a conch, as well as by a kind of versed song called kaap he reua.
