In early February, thousands of people flocked to the isolated mountain headquarters of one of Burma’s largest armed ethnic groups to celebrate Shan National Day. Days were marked with military drills and parades. At night, the rebel army’s rock and roll band took to the stage for raucous booze-fuelled concerts. Stories on the event appeared in Vice, Al Jazeera, and the Southeast Asia Globe. You can catch a glimpse of the action here.
