Nguyen Van Minh, Deputy Director of the HCMC Department of Culture and Sports, said: “We have introduced “Don ca tai tu” to schools, including schools in remote areas. Our program has been warmly welcomed by young people. It is a mistake to think that young people don’t care about this traditional music.”

The participants performed soles, duets, and trios praising the Vietnamese landscape and people. The finals and award ceremony will be held on August 7.
