Abstract

This work examined Kheng and music in the Tjor Phli ritual of the Hmong at Mae Tala village in Tambon Yang Maen, Samoeng district, Chiang Mai province. It was revealed that the ritual could be organized whenever the host was ready. It is the invitation and sending away the souls of the dead to the spiritual realm. The ritual requires only two types of musical instruments: Kheng to communicate with the souls and a drum or Tjor to invite the souls. According to their ethnic belief system, Kheng is an instrument to lead the souls and Tjor is the instrument to invite the souls. Kheng is a woodwind instrument. Legend has it that the Hmong did not want to be immortal. They saw two dead tigers and wanted to die like the tigers. The Supreme Spirit told the ethnic group to construct a Kheng to lead the souls of the tigers. The music in the ritual is related to souls or spirits, thus it could not be performed in other auspicious rituals.
