Baci Ceremony in France

It’s nice to see a Baci ceremony for a new born; I wrote a post on Baci Ceremony once, Baci is used for many special events, but it’s sometimes called Sou Khuane which we often hear in events such as a Lao Traditional Wedding, a homecoming, after a birth of a new born and the Baci is for both the mother and the baby, recovering from an illness, and many more. It’s especially nice to see a Laotian tradition being practiced amongst interracial couple, in this case, a Laotian and French.

It’s also our tradition to prepare Pa Kao Tip, a meal for our passed loved one(s), to tell them of the good news, the new addition to the family.

You can always expect good food at any Lao gathering.

Then the fun begins, I believed this is a line dance or Lao Bar Slope dance.

I think Lao people look beautiful in our traditional outfit, but it’s even prettier for me to see foreigners wearing our beautiful Lao Sinh and sash, I believed it’s their way of showing respect to our culture.

  1. Hello,

    My name is Hank Sims and I’m a member of the Wahiawa Hongwanji Buddhist Mission in Wahiawa Hawaii. I was wondering if I could use your article on the Baci Ceremony and some of the pictures for our quarterly publication called Hozo. This quarter, our theme is Birth and I found the Baci ceremony particularly relevant. Please contact me asap!

    Thanks for your time,

    Hank Sims
