Ca Trù

The Hai Phong Ca Trù Club


Combining music with poetry, Ca trù is a traditional form of music from Vietnam that has been performed for over 1000 years. In 2009, UNESCO designated it an intangible cultural world heritage. Now, 10 years later, this emotionally-charged art form has come to Awashijma Island to celebrate the opening of the Triennale’s Fall season.
