Kyaw Wai Sang Last Sunday
Mr. Kyaw Wai [Jaw Way] was among many solists and ensembles that sang in the Lao service last Sunday. He is a new Karen arrival that lives near Rte. 311 & Bus. I-85. I happened to be in the service when he sang. Someone loaned him an electric guitar and after tuning it a bit he sang out a Burmese song. Both the words and music was very different for me. Kay says that SE Asians may have a tonal quality and scales that are different than ours.
Carol Winslow told me yesterday that Kyaw Wai actually was quite a singer in Thailand and had a CD produced with his music. What a gift God has placed among us.
