Our Burma Association (We Burmans Association) was organized in 1930 with the slogan, "Burma is our country, Burmese literature is our literature, Burmese language is our language". Thakhin Ba Thaung was known as the founder of the Dobama Asiayone. To honour the organization and the political movement of Burmese patriots, and also to remind the great history of Burma, YMB Saya Tin composed the "Dobama" song (We Burmans) with patriotic lyrics. The first ever ceremonial rendition of this song was held at Shwedagon Pagoda at 5:00 pm on 20th July, 1930. Then it became popular, and one paragraph of this song was adopted for the Myanmar national anthem since 1947.
