The students brought beautiful performances to the stage, recreating the traditional rituals and ceremonies of their ethnic groups such as the ceremony to welcome new-rice season of the Bahnar people and the water-worshipping ritual and funeral of the Jrai group.

Y Se Ba, a seventh grader from the secondary school in Dak Kroong Commune, Dak Glei District, said that this is his first time being selected to participate in a gong performance. “I am very happy and proud to be able to introduce the typical cultural features of my ethnic group,” he said.
