The chief asked the boy to undergo a test. His test was to jump in and out of the ensuing gaps successfully to the measure of speed timed by the drum. He successfully got through the test by singing "chom chomdoh in" which means "jump in, jump out". Lunso Beru Cultural Club of Shamator Town from the Yimchunger troupe performed Kheangberü Khün, a folk song which is sung during Tsüngkamnio festival which occurs during the second week of January.;
