Trong Quan singing is a traditional art form in Bac Ninh province for centuries. However, the province has faced various difficulties in preservation of the traditional singing.

Trong Quan singing (improvisational antiphony between boys and girls) has been practiced by locals in Bac Ninh for hundreds of years, starting from the 13th century.

The preservation work, however, is facing obstacles since there are less people learn and practice the art form. Efforts to preserve Trong Quan have mostly been made by the artisans and those who have an attachment to the art form. This makes it difficult for younger generations to fully appreciate the beauty and value of Trong Quan.

In order to preserve the art genre, experts say it should be included into teaching curricula at high schools to promote its value./.
