The southern province of Tien Giang held an exhibition to mark the 96 th anniversary of Cai Luong (Reformed Theatre) on January 18.

The event also celebrated the art of Don Ca Tai Tu (amateur singing), a southern Vietnamese genre that has become part of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

The exhibition, which included over 300 artifacts, photos of Cai Luong musical instruments, recordings and costumes, covered its development in the province over the years.

Tien Giang is the home of Cai Luong and is the location where Chau Van Tu established the first Cai Luong troupe in Vietnam with its show launched in 1918.-VNA
