A programme has been held in Bac Ninh city, the northern province of Bac Ninh to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Quan ho (love duet) singing being recognised by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity.
Various activities kicked off in the northern province of Bac Ninh on February 14 as part of an ongoing festival marking a decade since the Quan ho Bac Ninh folk songs were recognised by UNESCO as part of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity.
Instead of performing in a communal house, the typical venue, the singers perform on boats on Nguyen Phi Y Lan Lake in Bac Ninh city.
Dozens of Quan ho (love duets) artists in the northern province of Bac Ninh – the cradle of the traditional art form – are coming together every Saturday night to entertain audiences in a very special performance.
(VOV) - The San Chi’s folk songs nurture their spirits from the time they are were born until they die. Despite social change and influence from other cultures, San Chi folk singing has been preserved and spread throughout the community.
