Hue folk singing to become unique cultural tourism product

Update: 19/07/2021
A draft project on “Promoting value and building Hue folk singing into a unique cultural tourism product in 2020-2025” has been granted approval by the People’s Commitee of the central province of Thua Thien-Hue.

Artists perform Hue folk singing, a variation of Hue royal court music, played on traditional musical instruments.

The draft project is set to feature a number of different aspects, including building typical features of Hue singing, developing unique performance spaces, and improving the overall product quality and experience for guests.

This will be done through propagating Hue singing through the creation of a mobile app, whilst promoting greater infrastructure investment and training human resources.

The primary goal of the initiative is to transform Hue royal court music into a typical and attractive tourism product which can satisfy the demands of visitors to the province.

Most notably, Hue folk singing was named as part of the country’s national intangible cultural heritage back in 2015 by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
