for many non-urban Myanmar would be hanging around at home with friends
or nursing a drink at the local teashop, telling jokes and chatting about
the day's event. Another good venue for entertainment would be at religious
or seasonal festivals. It is the time to enjoy Burmese folk drama and
pop music performances.
To find clubs
or restaurants with live music, then you've got to head on down to larger
towns or cities. There, you'll also find karaoke, alcohol and music. Most
of the music played is Burmese as according to the government's ruling.
Sometimes, you may get to hear some Chinese songs mixed into Burmese ones
Yangon and Mandalay. There are a few discos and dance clubs there. Most
of these nightclubs come with live music. A few of these operates independently.
The rest are part of a hotel. For "higher end" entertainment, there are
classical musical performances. These are occasionally sponsored by foreign
embassies in Yangon.
