Description
As at Tangbi, Jakchung Berchung straddle the reappeared Yulema character - and there is plenty of high-spirited atsara activity as well - as they pull the audience in to sharing an impromptu wake for the deceased Yulema. The Nabji Drup begins after dark with the entrance of the GAPO-LA - the oldest man - who carries a phallus and engages in lewd banter with the audience.
