Description:These photos were taken near the Jinman Village on August 7, 2017. The person came back with the plants to feed pigs. He stopped to say hi and selected a corn leaf to blow it to produce music. In the villages many people can do this and there can be a dialogue back and forth between two people far away from each other.
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.
