here is an excerpt:

--> Some observers have compared RAP with Thangyat, the first form of Burmese folk art.
Usually amusing and satirical, Thangyat combines
poetry, dance and music, sung to the beat of
a traditional drum on festive occasions.
During the Burmese New Year water festival
young people would publicaly recite the humorous
Thangyat lyrics, which freely criticise every-
thing from politics to social behavior. well, at least before R. Murdoch & them [NWO
GlobalMedia.]..get a reign on the hip hop/rap
and play the 'Pied Piper' role, to the youthful
generations.... ... ...
