HA NOI (VNS) — The monthly concert Giai Dieu Tu Hao (Melody of Pride) will be broadcast live tomorrow on Viet Nam Television's Channel 1, featuring the theme Dat Nuoc Loi Ru (The Country's Lullaby).

The theme is also the name of a number that will be sung at the concert. The other songs that will be performed include Me Yeu Con (Mother's Love); Ru Con Mua Dong (Winter Lullaby); Mau Hoa Do (Colour of the Red Flower); and Huyen Thoai Me (Mother Legend).

The song Me Yeu Con was composed by Nguyen Van Ty in 1956. It is a popular song that has become a symbol of maternal love. The composer used the northern area's lullabies and emotional lyrics to compose a song that is memorised by several Vietnamese mothers.

The song is normally performed by a female soloist. This time, the concert's music director Quoc Trung has revitalised the song by using two female singers.

The highlight of the concert will be the song Ru Con Mua Dong that will be performed by veteran singer Ai Van.

The song is part of a 22-song collection composed by Dang Huu Phuc for Ai Van.

"I sang the song for the first time in 1987. I was young then and lacked the experience of feeling maternal love. However, it's my best memory," Ai Van said.

The television show Giai Dieu Tu Hao (Melody of Pride) features songs that are making a comeback with the younger generation in Viet Nam.

The show is produced by Viet Nam Television, based on the format of a Russian programme entitled "National Treasures". — VNS
