San Diu ethnic group’s folk singing named national intangible cultural heritage

A ceremony was held in Tam Dao district, the northern province of Vinh Phuc on March 20 to receive a certificate recognising Soong Co folk singing by San Diu ethnic group in Lap Thach, Tam Dao and Binh Xuyen districts and Phuc Yen city as a national intangible cultural heritage. 

Soong Co songs have been maintained for hundreds of years in Vinh Phuc’s folk cultural treasure. They cover subjects such as love, love for nature, loyalty, respect for parents and grandparents, and humanity.

San Diu people sing these songs on every occasion, including during arduous working hours, on the fields, around a fire and even after dinner.

In order to preserve Soong Co singing, the province advocates developing ecological tours in combination with giving tourists an insight into local ethnic culture.

During the ceremony, 26 Soong Co songs were performed by 12 clubs in and outside the province.

The organising board presented one A prize to a Soong Co club in Son Nam commune, Son Duong district, the northern province of Tuyen Quang; two B prizes to a club in Dao Tru commune, Tam Dao district and another in Trung My commune, Binh Xuyen district, Vinh Phuc province.
