Vietnam participates in world folklore festival in Romania

Vietnam showcased its ethnic minority culture at the 2017 World Folk Culture Festival held in Romania in late July.

Vietnamese artists from the Au Co art troupe introduced typical songs and dances of the Kinh, Thai, and H'mong ethnic groups and those living on the Central Highlands. Their performances were accompanied by traditional instruments such as zither, a bamboo instrument called the T'rung, and the monochord which is found nowhere else in the world.

The 2017 World Folk Culture Festival attracted artists from 11 countries, including France, Italy, India, and Indonesia. It promotes folk music from around the globe.
