Co-organised by the Vietnam Musicians’ Association and the Dak Lak provincial People’s Committee, the festival features the participation of functional industries, the Associations of Literature and Arts, music associations and groups of musicians and artists from 20 provinces and cities across the country including from : Dak Nong, Gia Lai, Kon Tum, Lam Dong, Da Nang, Quang Nam, Quang Ngai, Binh Dinh, Phu Yen, Khanh Hoa, Ninh Thuan, Binh Thuan, Quang Ninh, Bac Ninh, Vinh Phuc, Phu Tho, Son La, Nam Dinh, Thua Thien Hue and Dak Lak.

The groups of musicians and artists have brought to the festival 52 works covering various genres of songs, concert s, as well as solos of national and foreign musical instruments. The works focus on praising the Party, Uncle Ho, the Fatherland and Vietnam’s seas and islands; achievements in the movement of building a new countryside in our country today. Of which, many works have been influenced by the folk music from different regions, especially the folk music of ethnic groups in the Central Highlands.

Along with the performance of new works, the festival also held a seminar “Central Highlands folk music in today’s musical life” in order to find ways to create musical works honouring the unique identity of the folk music, and the traditions of Central Highlands ethnic groups.

The seminar is also an opportunity for musicians to discuss and compose more and more influential works, not only in the country but also contributing to the national voice on the international music scene.

The festival runs until May 20, 2022.
