Music devotees will have an opportunity to enjoy popular Cai Luong songs and be drawn in time and space to sounds and images of boats and waterways of the Southern Region.

Many artists and musicians from Don Ca Tai Tu troupes from cities and provinces nationwide will take part in the event.

The festival aims to keep the tradition of Cai Luong alive in the community and foster a love of this particular kind of music amongst the people.

Documents of Don Ca Tai Tu have been compiled to submit to UNESCO for recognition as an Intangible Cultural Heritage.
