Unexpectedly, the powerful voice on the background of a traditional singing art form that is classified as an intangible cultural heritage of concern is coming from a very small girl
When the first words of the song "The Double-Sisters" were sung, the whole hall was silent. Unexpectedly, the powerful voice on the background of a traditional singing art form that is classified as an intangible cultural heritage comes from an extremely small girl: Phan Thi Kieu Vi - freshman in English Language at Dong A University.
Different from the image of flexible confidence, the definitive movement when performing on stage, Kieu Vi of the class days is a pretty girl, "little pepper" and a little shy. With Kieu Vi, Chau van is evident as blood flow in the bloodstream, because since Vi was heard and transmitted love with chau van from his grandfather - also an artist of this singing. Vi's parents are also those who love this difficult singing even though they do not follow the chau van singing like granddad so, as such, Vi's love with chau van also grows every day and becomes a passion from time to time.
Listening and singing songs from children but not until high school, Kieu Vi show their voices at the school-level arts competitions. Being commented by teachers and friends that she has a sound quality suitable for chau van that is the initial motivation for Vi to love, become more attached with chau van and the second prize of the 11th grade school arts competition is the first reward Vi had with Chau Van adoration - the meaningful gift Vi devotes to his grandfather who just left life not long ago.
A judge member "unveiled", Kieu Vi's impressive performance immediately "captivated" both the judges and the audience from the preliminary round and totally deserved to bring the first prize at the Final students of Dong A University 2018 and perform at the program "Thousand flowers of gratitude" to greet the Charter Season 20-11. Kieu Vi shared, "I was very surprised and did not think that People could love this song that much. My parents are very happy and proud because I have chosen chau van to show and present to people".
Choosing to study English Language - a highly integrated discipline and passionate about chau van - a traditional singing art, two "districts" sound a bit "unsteady". Kieu Vi laughs, "English language is a field of study that I want to develop my career and who know, I will have more opportunities to introduce Chau van to many international friends".
Kieu Vi also shared her desire to participate in many music contests to both try and be an opportunity to introduce the art of Chau van that is being cared for and preserved by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage to more public audiences.
