This study aims to explain a cross-cultural communication between Torajan and Buginese cultures contained in a mourning song in Rambu Soloq ritual in Toraja, called Osong. This research is a participatory observational study conducted in Sa’dan Balusu District, North Toraja Regency. The data in the form of social situations and speech events were obtained through recording, interviewing, and note-taking techniques. The data were analyzed interpretively-qualitatively. The results show that in the oral tradition of the death ritual “Rambu Soloq” in Osong song there is cross-cultural communication between the two regional cultures in South Sulawesi, namely Torajan culture and Buginese culture in the Luwu region which have a close relationship. This is expressed in Osong song which uses expressions in two different languages, namely the Buginese language and the Torajan language. The cross-cultural communication contained in Osong Song is described using the theory of intercultural communication which expresses the values and cultural norms and local wisdom of the people in the two regions.
