Beauty Sing The Blues

My beautiful mother, Malaysone who is currently battling Stage 4 NH-Lymphoma cancer sings Mor lam. Mor lam is a traditional Lao form of song in Laos. Mor lam means expert song, or expert singer, referring to the music or artist respectively. Other romanisations used include mo lam, maw lam, maw lum, moh lam and mhor lum. In Laos, the music is known simply as lam (ລຳ); mor lam (ໝໍລຳ) refers to the singer. Traditionally, the tune was developed by the singer as an interpretation of glawn poems and accompanied primarily by the khene, a free reed mouth organ, but the modern form is most often composed and uses electrified instrument.
The cancer is being a tad bit stubborn and is not gone as of yet so, I'm still remaining hopeful and prayed up.  Last weekend my mother was in great energy and we went to one of her friend surprise birthday party.  Her band was present, they serenaded her and even got her to sing. Here are some pictures and videos from last week from last week!

I think its so glorious that you kids are taking care of your mother and really spending that much needed time with her. I hope you all have the best success with the cancer being rid of. I just think its beautiful that you all are making the most of her time here whether she survives or not.
