ĐẮC LẮC -  A three-day music festival has been launched in the Central Highlands to attract songwriters from across the country.

Local chapters of the Musicians Associations have mobilised the latest works of the writers, who chose to use local and ethnic melodies, beats and rhythms as inspirational themes to convey their musical messages.

This is the first phase of putting together the new works that make it to the stage. 

The song's theme includes musicians' impressions of President Hồ Chí Minh, as his birthday fell on May 19, and ongoing activities in the country in protecting the islands and marine territories, the new rural lives in the country and their love for common homeland. 

"This festival is the meeting ground for our music writers to meet and exchange their latest works, the launching desk for their latest compositions," Nguyễn Đức Trịnh, chairman of the Việt Nam Musicians Association, said at the festival.

"These new works shall be performed by young talents, to discover new voices that will be the signature driving force of our music scene in the future."

The festival also presents new works in music theory studies, as well as those of music critics. They especially get peer reviews and criticism for new works, which use regional folkloric traits as well as vibrant colours and rhythmic beats of the Central Highlands and south-central coast, as well as some regions that produce generations of great singers and musicians that the whole country loved.

The festival also attempts to provide a larger picture of the preservation of folk music as well as bringing the music of the Central Highlands to describe the beautiful landscapes of the country. The second leg of this festival shall continue later this year. VNS
