Impressed: Akha Culture

“Akha Culture”

Sound clip from the Akha programme on Child Voice Radio, our very own radio station at DEPDC/GMS. ‘Akha Culture’ airs daily from 2.00 to 3.00pm on our local frequency FM 90.0 MHz.

The Akha are a hill tribe of subsistence farmers known for their artistry. Most Akha live in small villages among the mountains of China , Laos, Myanmar (Burma), and northern Thailand, where they are one of the six main hill tribes.

Child Voice Radio (CVR) broadcasts to Mae Sai and the surrounding area. Alongside the issues of human trafficking and forced labour, the shows cover everything from AIDS awareness to Thai cooking and cater for a wide range in musical tastes, from local traditional music to Thai and Western artists. CVR provides a unique opportunity for our children and youth to have their voices heard in the community. Most shows are call-in shows where DeeJays and DeeJanes take calls from the community live on the show.
