February 26, 2023

BẮC NINH — A series of special cultural and tourism activities will take place this week as part of the quan họ (love duet) singing festival 2023 being held in the northern province of Bắc Ninh. An opening ceremony held on Saturday in the province's Kinh Bắc Cultural Centre Square attracted thousands of people to this year's festival which is themed Về Miền Quan Họ (Travelling to the Land of Quan Họ). Bắc Ninh is also known as the land of traditional folk festivals, with various customs and practices. Folk performances have their own unique nuances, typically the quan họ singing, which has been recognised by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity. Up to now, after more than 10 years since being recognised, Quan họ Bắc Ninh has been preserved and spread strongly domestically and internationally, said Giang.
