The Rabinal Achí is a Maya theatrical play written in the K'iche' language and performed in Rabinal, Baja Verapaz, Guatemala. Its original name is Xajoj Tun meaning, Tun (trumpet) Dance. Rabinal Achí is a dynastic Maya drama from the fifteenth century and a rare example of pre-Hispanic traditions. It comprises myths of origin and addresses popular and political subjects concerning the inhabitants of the region of Rabinal, expressed through masked dance, theatre, and music. The music is played on the tun, a wooden slit-drum of great antiquity, and two trumpets or shawms. The tun player is usually also the stage and music director, and is often in charge of the production. The drama was translated into French by Charles-Étienne Brasseur de Bourbourg, from an Achi narration of the cofrade Bartolo Sis in 1856.
