Xem anh phong to
A performance of “Xoan Singing” was held for ambassadors and cultural counsellors from 40 embassies in Hanoi on Oct. 15 to acquaint them with the candidate for world cultural heritage title.

Deputy Foreign Minister Nguyen Thanh Son, who is also Head of the Vietnam National UNESCO Commission, said the traditional folk singing of the northern midland of Phu Tho will be tabled at the November conference of UNESCO for consideration to be recognised as intangible world cultural heritage of humanities.

“Hat Xoan” is believed to have been created more than 500 years ago. It has some similarities with the lullaby. Many of the songs are about love, but it is also a kind of folk music that praises a village genie.

There are many forms of “Hat Xoan”: duet, group singing accompanied by several kinds of dances.

Xoan festivals are often held in spring in village temples. On the fifth day of the first lunar month, the artists often sing it at the Hung Temple festival.
