Trong quan Duc Bac singing - response folk singing between male and female groups – has been practised by locals in the northern province of Vinh Phuc for centuries and has become a cultural “speciality” of the locality.

The art form involves spontaneous back and forth repartee singing accompanied by drums. The witty response of singers on various topics and in different voices is a unique feature of this folk art.

Each spring, young men in Duc Bac village of Vinh Phuc province and young women from the neighbouring province of Phu Tho gathered on the bank of a river in Duc Bac to engage in Trong quan singing, through which they express their love. The singing then gradually moved to the yard of the communal house.

The singing has played an important role in the spiritual life of residents in Duc Bac, helping them relax after days of hard work.

Through the singing, traditional culture has passed down from generation to generation.

To preserve and promote the genre of music in the modern time, synchronous measures are needed, with attention paid to honouring artisans and encouraging the community to protect and carry forward the heritage’s value.

Notably, to turn the folk art into a unique tourism product for Vinh Phuc, it is necessary to organize performances at cultural-historic sites and popular tourist attractions, and included Trong Quan shows in programmes of community-based tours.
