BAC LIEU (VNS)  — A website featuring the first National Don Ca Tai Tu (Southern Folk Music) Festival 2014 was launched on Tuesday, according to the Bac Lieu Department of Information and Communications.

The website, festival/dcttquocgia.baclieu.gov.vn, features news, events and photos related to the festival.

Don Ca Tai Tu, which was developed in southern Viet Nam in the late 19th century, is a combination of traditional and contemporary music and was recognised as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in December last year in Baku, Azerbaijan.

The first national festival will take place from April 20-25 in the southern province of Bac Lieu.— VNS
