More than 300 gong artisans from ethnic minority groups across the Central Highland province of Lam Dong will join together in a gong culture festival in Lac Duong district on April 29-30.

According to Director of the provincial Culture Centre Nguyen Vu Hoang, the event will embrace a wide range of attractive activities, especially contests to identify the sound of various gongs and enquire about the local gong culture.

It will also honour gong artisans, who make active contributions to preserving and developing the special art form, Hoang added.

A horse race and folk games will be organised during the event, which is expected to be the ever largest gong festival in the Central Highlands.-VNA
