Recently listed in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage, the khaen – or khene – is the most important traditional instrument in Lao music. Mouth organ made out of bamboo, it is used during celebrations, concerts, singing and dancing. Widely popular, the khaen produces a very typical and immediately recognizable sound. The French Institute offers you an evening dedicated to its discovery during a unique concert in its cinema.
