HA NOI (VNS) — A night of Vietnamese folk music featuring ca tru (ceremonial singing), cheo (popular theatre), chau van (spiritual singing) and xam (minstrel singing) will take place in Ha Noi on January 10.

Following two performances in France's Guimet Museum as part of the Viet Nam Year in France, "Bamboo and Silk" will be held for the first time in Ha Noi at L'Espace, the French Cultural Centre. The concert will take the audience back in time across 10 centuries of Vietnamese culture and music.

The audience will be immersed in the voices, instruments, timbres and rhythms of Vietnamese ancient melodies. Many of the songs to be performed are listed as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Tickets are available at L'Espace, located at 24 Trang Tien Street, Ha Noi. — VNS
