Activities to highlight cultural colours of Vietnamese ethnic groups

Hanoi: ‘Colours of Vietnamese ethnic groups’ cultures’ will be the main theme of activities to be held at the Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism in the suburbs of Hanoi in April 2024.

As part of events to respond to the Vietnamese Ethnic Groups’ Culture Day (April 19), activities will contribute to promoting and upholding unique traditional cultural values of the ethnic communities, thus attracting tourists during national holidays.

The reenactment of a mountainous market of Cao Bang province will be the most attractive event. It will spotlight the cultural space of ethnic groups of Lo Lo, Mong, Tay, Nung and Dao, their traditional cuisine and specialties, traditional arts, and folk games.

The Mong people in Cao Bang will introduce melodies of Khen (panpine) art, which plays an important role in their cultural and spiritual life

Meanwhile, Dao (Dao Tien) and Nung ethnic groups will showcase their traditional handicrafts of beeswax batik printing on fabric, and incense-making, respectively.

A rain praying festival will be reenacted by 15 artisans from the Lo Lo ethnic group in Bao Lac district.
