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.
