I met Paetai Paeira in the distant mountain village of Pukaram, Thailand. As part of the indigenous Karen community he is a bearer of century old traditions. Although the destiny of his people has not been the brightest, he hopes for a better future – for the other Karen and for his family.
The beautiful song he performs on a traditional string instrument goes along the line of “The wind can bend a single bamboo stick, but it cannot them if they are many and they stick together”.
