HCM CITY (VNS) — A new series on SCTV7 channel celebrates the first anniversary of UNESCO's recognition of don ca tai tu (southern amateur singing) as intangible cultural heritage.

Since long ago, don ca tai tu has been an integral part of the cultural and spiritual life of people living in the south.

The 20-episode series depicts the life and career of musician Cao Van Lau, who wrote one of the genre's most popular songs, Da Co Hoai Lang (Night Drum Beat Causes Longing for Absent Husband).

Cai luong (reformed opera) actor Vo Minh Lam plays the musician in the series, directed by Xuan Phuoc. — VNS
