The Khmu ethnic minority group in Laos are considered one of the original or oldest in the country.  Along with the Hmong, they too celebrate their New Year in mid-December.  Here's a look at their recent celebrations last month, by Youtuber NatNomad.

The Khmu language is also different from Lao.  In the video you'll get to hear their language spoken and translated.

Additionally, their unique version of the baci ceremony, the pakow centerpiece, as well as, their contrasting black and red clothing all contribute to a fascinating and beautiful look at a new year's celebration can look like in Laos.
