Festivals of Laos

Text by Martin Stuart-Fox and Somsanouk Mixay. Photographs by Steve Northup

Laos is a land of festivals. Every village, every temple, and every ethnic minority not only holds its own special festivals but also joins the wider Lao community in celebrating the national ones as well. This book explores the most important festivals of Laos and offers a rare and fascinating glimpse into the spiritual and communal life of the Lao people. Written and photographed by experts in Lao history, society, and culture, Festivals of Laos is a wonderful combination of insightful narrative and stunning photography.

"Having lived in and traveled to most parts of Laos over the past thirty years, I find this publication truly representative of the beautiful landscapes, peoples, and festivals of Laos. The photographs and commentary in this book offer us an intriguing insight into the cultural tapestry of Laos. Never before have I seen Lao festivals depicted so comprehensively. Laos is a country with fascinating cultures, religions, and peoples, all of which are well represented in the chapters of this book." - Dr. Michael Mann, Ambassador of the Order of Malta to Thailand and Cambodia, and previously Australian Ambassador to Laos and Vietnam

"There is no better way to enjoy the culture of a country than through the eye of a true artist and the mind of a real expert. Northup and Stuart-Fox are to Laos what Stanley and Livingston were to Africa. These two produce my favorite insights into the Mekong region, full of compassion and perception. - Colin Cotterill, author of the Dr. Siri Paiboun series
