HA NOI (VNS) — On March 12, 8pm, the French cultural centre L'Espace will present a music night of Vietnamese traditional music entitled Vui Xuan-Cung Bac-Dieu Nam.
Vietnamese traditional music has a clear distinction between Northern and Southern melodies – while the northern melodies are quite joyous, the southern ones are more "melancholy".
The joyous northern and melancholy southern tunes will be presented during the night, which will feature five genres of Vietnamese traditional music: tuong (classical drama), ca tru (ceremonial singing), cheo (traditional operetta), chau van (ritual singing) and xam (buskers singing).
Tickets, from VND80,000 are available at L'Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street. — VNS
