Preserving Sinh ca melodies of Cao Lan ethnic people

(BGO) - In order to preserve and promote the folk music of Cao Lan ethnic group (Sinh ca) in Bac Giang province, in April 2020, a group of teachers from the provincial Intermediate School of Culture, Sports and Tourism implemented the project "Researching and conserving the folk music of the Cao Lan ethnic group, contributing to the development of community-based tourism".

According to teacher Phan Dinh Oanh, who is the project leader, in 2018, during the research on folk music of the Cao Lan people in the province, the group found that in some localities, ethnic folk music activities are fading, young people are not interested in this kind of art, and many children can't even speak their own language anymore.

From that fact, the group proposed carrying out the project "Researching and conserving the folk music of the Cao Lan ethnic group, contributing to the development of community-based tourism" in order to preserve traditional values as well as the unique culture of the Cao Lan people.

To implement the project in two years (from April 2020 to April 2022), teacher Phan Dinh Oanh and his colleagues came to most regions and areas with a large number of Cao Lan people in Son Dong, Luc Ngan, Luc Nam and Yen The districts to assess the current status of the ethnic group’s folk music. The group focused on studying the characteristics of folk music that still exist in the life of the Cao Lan community, thereby proposing solutions to preserve and develop the folk music in association with the development of community-based tourism.

They researched, recorded and turned 27 Cao Lan folk songs into musical pieces, made phonograms of musical instruments of the Cao Lan ethnic group, and clarified the basic characteristics of the folk music of the Cao Lan people such as features of lyrics and their influence on the music, the characteristics of the rhythm, the musical structure and the forms of Sinh ca melodies...

Artisan Au Thi Hoa from Ven village, Xuan Luong commune (Yen The district) said: "In the past, like many elderly people in the village, I only sang Sing ca in every New Year festival. Since the research project was implemented, we have not only sung more often but also performed for tourists to Ven village. Children also have the opportunity to learn and learn their group’s folk songs through the phonograms of the research team”.

Along with the phonograms of folk melodies, the research team built a model of preserving Cao Lan folk music through the activities of Cao Lan folk music clubs in localities.

“As soon as the project was accepted, we had a plan to promote the value of the research by supporting localities to effectively maintain the clubs. At schools, we will continue research to make Cao Lan folk music a subordinate subject in folk art classes," said teacher Phan Dinh Oanh.
