Pao Dung singing of Vietnam’s Dao ethnic minority people and the Ky Yen festival of the Tay ethnic minority were recognized as intangible cultural heritage at a ceremony in the northern mountainous province of Bac Kan on Thursday.

Pa Dung is the traditional singing of the Dao people who live in northern Vietnam. It is performed during important events such as weddings, funerals, and the coming of age ceremony.

The Ky Yen festival has long been a tradition of the Tay people. It worships the groups’ ancestors, embodying the Vietnamese motto “when drinking water, remember the source”.
