Japan helps preserve VietNam's royal music (November 24, 2004)

Thua Thien-Hue, Nov. 24 (VNA) - The Japanese Trust Fund will provide 162,490 USD through UNESCO for a 350,000 USD project to preserve royal music or "nha nhac" in Viet Nam.

The centre for preservation of former imperial citadel relics of Hue city announced on Tuesday that the project carried out from now until 2007 will make a systematic list of "nha nhac" performers and researchers to provide them with preferential allowances.

"Nha nhac" was recognised by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) as one the humanity's "intangible oral masterpieces" in early November 2003.

It is also referred to as "elegant music", which was commonly performed at grand royal ceremonies and religious events as well as on special occasions, including coronations, funerals and official receptions. The music was first introduced to the public during the Ly Dynasty in the 15th century and flourished in the country's last feudal dynasty, the Nguyen, in the late 18th century.
