Description:This series of photos depicts various scenes of the Shangwang Festival at Luobenzhuo, on March 3, 2018. Photos were taken by YXX and they accompany the session bani_yang0004, that transcribes the harvest prayers by Lasandong.
Lemo is considered a Northern Branch of the Bai language. It is spoken by 12,000 people in the Nujiang Valley of the Yunnan Province in China. Lemo culture and language faces a decline due to the encroachment of Lisu and Mandarin Chinese. The current project aims at working with the Language Community to document its language in its dynamic daily uses and cultural performances. It will produce a working orthography, a language learning manual, partially annotated digital audio and video materials that represent the cultural and linguistic practices, a dictionary, and a sketch grammar.
