Lam Dong province acts to preserve gong culture (12/03/18)
The Central Highlands province of Lam Dong has approved a plan to preserve and promote the gong cultural space, which has been recognised by UNESCO as an intangible heritage of humanity.

The scheme aims to gradually restore the values of the gong culture space as well as the traditional lifestyles of ethnic minorities in the province, as a way to safeguard their cultural identity and provide a boost for tourism.

Lam Dong province’s programme also seeks to train a new crop of young instrumentalists who can protect and keep the gong culture alive.

The plan is part of Viet Nam’s commitment to UNESCO for safeguarding the tradition, which was originally proclaimed as a masterpiece of the intangible heritage of humanity in 2005.

The cultural space of gongs is practised by 17 ethnic groups in five provinces across the Central Highlands, namely Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Dak Nong, and Lam Dong.
