Here's the second part of the virtual world tour to the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Now visiting Oceania, Singapore, Philippines, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia.
I'd really like to see Sbek Thom, Khmer Shadow Theatre, some day. On full screen the film already looks pretty nice, including the 'making of' and 'behind the scenes' parts.

After all, the traditional stories, too, were new at some point in the past.
This virtual world tour can amuse us for a while, if we travel all around the globe. But: Please do introduce your own polls and conversation topics whenever you feel like it, I don't want to monopolise the stage. Our visit of the world's intangible cultural heritage can pause and continue any time.
