The ongoing Hue Festival in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue offered visitors a feast of traditional music in the evening of April 16.

Examples of Viet Nam’s traditional music were staged during “Am sac Viet” (Vietnamese Timbre) programme at Dien Tho Palace inside Hue city’s Imperial Citadel.

Local artists performed pieces of the Hue singing and ca tru (ceremonial singing) while those from Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh City performed northern folk songs and southern “Don ca tai tu” singing.

The atmosphere was later also filled with melodies of Xoan singing - a traditional ritual folk genre - from the northern province of Phu Tho and Quan ho (love duet singing) from northern Bac Ninh.

“Am sac Viet” will run until April 18.

Meanwhile, “Am sac Huong Binh” (Huong Binh Tune) at Nghinh Luong Pavilion was dedicated to highlighting values of the Hue singing which embodies both royal and folkloric features, thus becoming a distinctive component of Hue’s identity.

The audience had a chance to enjoy the genre through the voice of many artists, particularly Thanh Tam, who is at her 70s and has spent her whole life singing in the Hue style.

The programme was concluded while flower lanterns floated down the Huong (Perfume) River - the traditional backdrop of the singing.

The Hue Festival is held every two years to honour the unique cultural and historical values of Hue, Viet Nam and Asia through artistic shows. This year’s event will run until April 20.
