VN moves to preserve ‘world heritage’ folk singing

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism on April 16 publicised a national action programme to preserve two UNESCO-recognised forms of Vietnamese folk singing in the 2010-2015 period.
On the day, the two cultural treasures received UNESCO certificates recognising “Quan Ho Bac Ninh” singing (Bac Ninh folk love duets) as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity and Ca Tru (ceremonial singing) as an Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding.
