LAM DONG (VNS) — More than 300 gong artisans from ethnic minority groups across the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong will join a gong culture festival in Lac Duong district on April 29-30.

Nguyen Vu Hoang, director of the provincial Culture Centre, said the event will have a wide range of interesting and attractive activities including contests to identify the sounds of various gongs and quizzes about the local gong culture.

It will also honour gong artisans who have contributed actively to preserving and developing the special art form, Hoang added.

A horse race and several folk games will also be organised during the event that is expected to be the ever largest gong festival held to date in the Central Highlands. —VNS
