By far, my favorite dance party song, it's the Nyork, Nyork part that gets me. Lao songs like to have a call-and-response, and this is one of them, followed by a Heeeeeoooo that makes you wanna drop a Brrrrrrrrrr. By the way, I have no idea what any of these sounds mean, they kinda sound like fun things to shout when you're having a good time - but if any of you out there know, do share! In this version, the singer has a cute crack in her voice, she sounds like she would be a good friend.
First time I remember this song, was in Seattle watching the Lao Heritage Foundation Northwest/Kinnaly Dance Camp. I overheard a girl tell her dad when they practiced to the Nyork Nyork they had to be sassy and shake those hips. Seeee.
