Multi-sensory experiences of “Xam” singing

Recently, an online art exhibition was held in Hanoi to bring multi-sensory experiences to those who love “Xam”, a traditional kind of singing in Vietnam.


Highlighted at the show is an artwork installation in the shape of an eye created by 200 castanets and a couple of Xam drums. Through the work, the organizers wish to send their message to the audience: “Let’s view “Xam” in different dimensions to discover its full beauty”.

Also showcased is a painting depicting the three expressions of “Xam” performers, a portrait of meritorious artist Ha Thi Cau, and a documentary about young people learning the art of “Xam” singing.

“Xam” is a centuries-old singing style that has long been recognised as an important piece of Vietnam’s cultural heritage./.
