“Lullabies of the Central Highlands” is being organized at the Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism in the Dong Mo tourism area of Son Tay town in Hanoi during June to promote the culture of the central highlands’ ethnic minority communities.

The program sees the participation people from 12 ethnic minority groups: Tay, Dao, H’mong, Thai, Muong, Kho Mu, Ta Oi, Co Tu, Raglai, E De, Khmer and Cham.

One of the main activities is performances of lullabies and folk songs, on June 23 and 24, together with introducing typical family meals in the region, the making of traditional musical instruments, and the weaving of fabric.

Traditional festivals with unique rituals as well as music and games of the ethnic groups are being presented, such as a house-warming ceremony of the Cham group in Ninh Thuan province and a ceremony of brotherhood and longevity celebrations of the Ede people in Dak Lak province.

On weekends, a number of art programs, dance performances with unique instruments, such as gongs, folk games, and experimental cooking sessions will also be organized, on June 9 and 10 and June 16 and 17.

As June is considered the month of children in Vietnam, there will be a drawing class entitled “Central Highlands in My Mind” and a free training course on the philosophy of life and culture of Buddhism, called “Pink Lotus”, for children visiting the village on June 16 and 17.

To mark Vietnamese Family Day on June 28, there will be a cooking contest in traditional food from the central highlands, sports competitions, and musical performances.
