Nghia Lo district in Yen Bai province is home to 17 ethnic minorities, with nearly half Thai people, who are renowned for various folk songs, dances and traditional customs. To preserve these diverse traits, the district has taken various measures. 


Clubs for traditional art forms have been formed in Nghia Lo town. Despite their busy lives, club members like Lo Thi Vui spend time practicing traditional dance moves.

These dance moves are Thai people’s pride and an integral part of their souls. Dancing with other club members is not just a hobby but a way to keep the love for traditional values burning.

The outstanding club members can perform in local contests and festivals, helping introduce the distinctive cultural traits of Thai ethnic people to both domestic and foreign visitors.-VNA
