AZI
 
Azi are also known as Zeitwa. It is also one of the Klachin stock. They are widespread in the Sadon area, northeast and southwest of Kodaung region and in Yunnan. There are about 4 sub - groups. The men wrap black clothes around their heads but with a tassel hanging below . Their traditional dresses are black, baggy trousers and black jackets. The women wound their hairs neatly in a knot and wrap clothes around the heads. They wear black jackets and hand-woven htameins.
Like the Jingpaw, Maru and Azi they have their own traditional festivals. The Htaungka Dance of the Azi is famous. They have wind instruments made out of buffalo horns. Musical instruments called "Piyet"," Pitop " and "Tuyin" are used extensively.
In olden times the young people of both sexes meet at a specially designated building called "Wanze" at night and they play- fully ask riddles of each other or sing or have fun together.
