Art show brings Peru closer to Vietnam

A special art program was held in Hanoi on Monday to mark Peru's 198th Independence Day and the 25th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Vietnam and Peru.

Peruvian Ambassador to Vietnam Augusto Morelli said it is time for Vietnam and Peru to enhance and deepen their relations in various spheres. The ambassador said he hoped that the show will help Vietnamese people understand more about Peru's music and culture.

During the show, Peruvian band Apu Inka performed Vietnamese folk music and traditional dances of the Amazon jungle and the high mountains of the Andes, using traditional and modern instruments. The performances included traditional dances of the ancient Peruvian civilization as well as new dances based on the indigenous culture and influences from Spanish and African cultures.
