HA NOI  (VNS) — A music video featuring xam (minstrel's singing) by Ha Thanh xam club has gone on-line, making the traditional singing art popular among youth.

The singers perform xam sai, a melody to express their patriotism and their attitude to social issues. The rarely performed tune was originally performed by a shaman in his battle with an evil spirit.

The video is the third version of xam sai melody recorded by artisan Vu Duc Sac and composer Thao Giang focusing on eliminating illiteracy and fighting corruption.— VNS
