HA NOI (VNS)-- A performance highlighting some of the best Vietnamese traditional arts will be performed every Monday morning and Saturday evening at the Viet Nam Women's Museum.
The show features musical instruments such as dan bau (monorchord), nhi (two-string Chinese violin), cheo (traditional opera) and ca tru (ceremonial singing).
The highlight of the show will be xam folk singing, which is a unique culture hailing from Ha Noi's old quarter. Historically xam tau dien is well known for being performed on the city's trams. There are two main genres - xam cho (xam singing performed at markets) and xam co dau (performed in groups at drinking establishments).
The show aims to make foreign visitors aware of the differences between traditional arts, from the lyrics sung to the costumes and performance style adopted.
The one-hour show will begin at 10am on Mondays and 8pm on Saturdays. -- VNS
