ca tru

Hát ca trù, Tru Singing also known as ả đào singing or  nói singing, is a traditional art in Viet Nam, is an ancient genre of chamber music featuring female vocalists, with origins in northern Vietnam.For much of its history, it was associated with a geisha-like form of entertainment, which combined entertaining wealthy people as well as performing religious songs for the royal court.

Ca trù literally translates as “tally card songs.” This refers to the bamboo cards men bought when they visited ca trù inns, where this music was most often performed in the past. Men would give the bamboo cards they purchased to the woman of choice after her performance, and she would collect money based upon how many cards she was given. And it was performed the first time in 10th century

Ca trù is inscribed on the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage in need of Urgent Safeguarding in 2009.
