Traditional musicians to perform for free

HA NOI (VNS) —Every Saturday from 8.30pm on the sixth floor of 34 Hoang Cau Street (Fansipan Mushroom Hotpot), you can enjoy a ca tru performance by Bach Van Ca Tru and Friends.

Named by UNESCO in 2003 as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, this centuries-old poetic singing tradition immerses the listeners in an intoxicating world of images and sounds from times gone by.

Well-known traditional instrumentalists Ngoc Anh (flute), Thu Ha (tam thap luc – 36-string zither), Thanh Nam (drum), Bach Van (singer) and Ba Hai (dan day – three-string flute) perform both classic ca tru melodies and contemporary music.

The show is free on a first-come-first-serve basis.

For further information, please contact (English and Vietnamese) or Bach Van at 091 354 4876 (Vietnamese only).-VNS
