Quan họ singing is a Vietnamese folk music style characterized both by its antiphonal nature, with alternating groups of female and male singers issuing musical challenges and responses, and by the fact that most of the songs in the repertoire deal with topics of love and sentimentality as experienced by young adults. Quan ho is recognized as the Intangible Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO in 2009
On 11.11.2015, Vietnamese Language Studies organized a mini lecture and invited 2 famous Quan Họ artists, one of them is Mr. Quí Thăng, one of the most experienced quan họ artists, to come to VLS and introduce this unique kind of art to our students. This section has brought a new experience to our students and helped them understand more about Vietnamese music culture. Here are some short recaps of the lecture and we want foreigners who love to learning Vietnamese to read it.
Many students joined the lecture together with their teachers.
